Summer Learning Challenge – Leduc Library
Recent data shows that only 1 in 3 parents with children ages 6-17 have heard of the Summer Slide! The Summer Slide is the loss of skills during the time when students are not in school. The Summer Learning Challenge at the Leduc Public Library provides an engaging and motivating way to keep children reading and learning throughout the summer. We are excited to offer this service to our community free of charge.

Teachers and parents/guardians often find that children develop skills and make substantial gains throughout the school year but regress during the summer months. Studies show that children who read throughout the summer keep up their reading level and thus do better when they return to school in the fall. The Leduc Public Library in partnership with the TD Summer Reading Club is excited to provide children with the opportunity to read more over the summer months through our Summer Learning Challenge.

This year the theme is GAME ON, and while we are following public health measures, we will engage children in a variety of literacy boosting activities. Our program is fun, free, full of prizes, and lead by a certified teacher and certified educational assistant.

From July 5th-August 20th, the library will be offering a new scavenger hunt every week, a “Read to our mascots” drop-in during our regular hours, and free registered kits. Kits will include different literacy, numeracy, and STEAM activities every week. Most importantly, children get to read for fun and are encouraged to log their days of reading each week for a chance to win great prizes!

Registration begins June 21st at 10:00 AM at the library and online. Join us for the Summer Learning Challenge Kick off for A Teddy Bear Sleepover on June 21st, Sidewalk Obstacle Course June 21-25, and Story Walk June 29-30. Visit our website at or give us a call at 780-986-2637 for more information

Read for fun! Stop the Summer Slide!
