With summer family trips still being planned for the next several weeks, the Door County Library has multiple tools for adults and children to make the travel more entertaining and even educational. Door County Youth Services Librarian Beth Lokken says the resources available to travelers go beyond hardback and paperback books.
Lokken says it is important for children to avoid what is commonly called the “summer slide”. That is where a child can lose a week’s worth of their reading skills for every week they go without reading during the summer, according to Lokken.
