The Oregon State Library recently reported on 2014 Summer Reading Program statistics gathered from public libraries across the state, and the results look great!

Reading during the summer has been shown as one of the most important things a child can do to maintain critical language and reading skills gained over the previous year.

Of the 207,449 Oregon kids who participated in Summer Reading this year, 30,126 were from Washington County -- that's 14%!

Of the 69,060 participants who reached their reading goals for the summer, 15,039, or 22%, were from Washington County. Way to go, Summer Readers, parents, and libraries!
