The MBLC Asks "What's Your Four?"

What's Your Four Logo

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners is very excited to announce the "What's Your Four?" campaign for the 2017 Summer Library Program!

Children who read just four books over the summer fare better on reading-comprehension tests in the fall than their peers who read one or no books. Because of this, we are challenging librarians and residents to choose four books to read over the summer months, and to share their selections on social media. All posts should include the hashtag #WhatsYourFour? and participants are encouraged to tag friends to ask them to post as well. Below are resources that will help your library get started with the campaign:
