Library holds Summer Camp Reading

The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is offering Summer Camp Reading as part of its Summer Adventure this year. Summer Camp Reading is an intensive four-week day camp designed to improve the reading skills of third-graders struggling to read at grade level. Students will receive instruction and one-on-one tutoring by certified educators.

Through fun activities and reading, campers will dramatically improve their reading skills and gain confidence in their ability to learn. By the end of the program, campers will show significant improvement in word recognition, comprehension and reading fluency.

Summer Camp Reading takes place weekdays from July 10-Aug. 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the following Library locations:

Space is limited and enrollment is required. To enroll, students must:

  • Be entering the third grade this fall or be a third-grader who was not promoted to fourth grade due to low reading test scores
  • Be behind grade level in reading
  • Be able to attend camp daily
  • Have a parent or guardian’s permission to attend camp

For enrollment information, call 369-7855 or email
