ALBANY – State Senator Mike Nozzolio wants students to have fun reading and
keep learning this summer by participating in the 2010 New York Statewide
Summer Reading Program.

"Evidence shows that children who stop reading over summer vacation often
fall behind when they return to school in September,” said Senator
Nozzolio. "This program is designed to get children to realize the rewards
of reading by encouraging them to exercise their imaginations and make
reading a daily event this summer," said Senator Nozzolio.

Last year, more than 1.5 million youngsters took part in the Summer Reading
Program. With resources and tools made available through the New York State
Library, local public libraries will once again offer the program to their

New York state history is featured in this year's summer reading program.
Senator Nozzolio is urging youngsters and families to participate and
explore New York's rich history through suggested reading lists and special
library events.

Children, teens, parents, and caregivers can also log on to
www.summerreadingnys.org for activities, games, links, information, and
ideas to keep children reading all summer. For an overview of the New York
Statewide Summer Reading Program and additional information, educators,
parents, and caregivers can go to www.nysl.nysed.gov/libdev/summer.

"It is my hope that local school children take part in this program and use
it as their passport to a world of learning and imagination," said Senator
Nozzolio. “Whether you are on vacation, at pool side or on the beach,
bring a book with you and read. Read and learn about the things that
fascinate you and don’t forget to let me know. We can never stop learning
and I want to make sure that when school ends in June, the learning does
not stop for our children."

Sen. Nozzolio said families can contact their local public library to
register for the program.
