“If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.” This adage doesn’t just apply to the body and our physical abilities, it also applies to our mind and our mental abilities. Educators are well aware of this reality, especially as it applies to what is known as the “summer slide.” But there are ways to mitigate the effects of “mindless” summer fun and librarians can play a big role in this. In their webinar, “The Perfect Equation for Summer Reading Success: School + Public Librarians, Jen C. Cannell and Mary Fellows provide ideas for developing summer programs and demonstrate how, through their shared vision and mission, school and public librarians are natural partners for collaboration in order to prevent summer slide, motivate young readers, and strengthen the community.
