  1. Fortunately, here in Hartford CT we are blessed to have a library system that has gotten funds to promote and present a full summer reading program for children from birth to 18 and parents as well. We have secured software that allows parents and students to register and record their reading progress online and pick up incentive prizes and any neighborhood library. There will also be free lunch for children at all libraries in Hartford beginning in late June as well as many special activities to keep kids busy and reading during the summer so they don’t lose their skills over the vacation period.
