About Summer of Learning

Summer of Learning 2020 Every Day is Earth Day

Summer of Learning at The Seattle Public Library provides youth:

  • fun and educational programs that reflect the rich cultural communities of Seattle
  • activities to support reading for fun over the summer
  • early literacy engagement for families with young children (ages 0-5)
  • access to books and reading through our community partner organizations
  • learning experiences that center youth interests
  • exposure to programs that build skills and confidence

The 2021 Summer of Learning will include programs and activities for early learners, children, teens, and families, and will explore community-driven programs that explore the intersection of art, history, and social justice.

Check back here in May for more information as we launch the 2021 Summer of Learning program!
