This year's summer reading activities are designed to be paired with a book on fitness and activity. We suggest The Busy Body Book: A Kids Guide to Fitness by Lizzy Rockwell, July 8, 2008.
Starting in 2012, the NYS SET Program Work Team worked towards developing a relationship between NYS 4-H Youth Development and NYS Public Libraries Summer Reading Program. The program engages youth in Kindergarten through 2nd grade, and teen leaders. The objectives of the program include: 1) Encourage new linkages or partnerships between local 4-H Programs and libraries and strengthen already existing partnerships; 2) Develop new audiences for both 4-H and Libraries (e.g., 4-H members attend library programs who have not been before, and non-4-H Youth become introduced to 4-H); 3) Youth participants demonstrate increased STEM knowledge and practice skills as well as considering future careers in STEM, ultimately pursuing more 4-H STEM projects throughout the year; 4) Develop a model for a successful local 4-H/Library partnership and comprehensive training and promotion using workshops, the web, and national 4-H Curriculum Directory.
