The Pioneer Library System’s  Summer Learning Challenge 2024 has begun!

“Summer is such an important time! Our goal with SLC is to prevent summer learning loss and engage community members of all ages in connecting, reading and learning. Families who keep reading over the summer can even prevent summer learning loss. Research shows that students who fall behind over the summer are less likely to graduate from high school or go on to college,” said Aiden Street, Director of Community Engagement & Learning at PLS.

Running through August 15, SLC encourages participants to log their time spent reading and learning. Once logged, each minute of learning becomes one point, and that point goes toward a community goal of 15 million points.
