The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has declared July UV Safety Month.  The goal is to spread the word about how important it is to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays.  During the summer we think of going to the beach and all the outdoor fun at the pool or simply playing outside but we should all take a moment to educate ourselves on UV safety.  Protecting ourselves and educating our children on the importance of sun safety will help prevent skin damage in the future.  Here are some easy steps to consider to be safe this summer:

Cumberland County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program

Photograph of a young girl laying in the grass reading a book on a spring dayThrough stories, children are exposed to a wide range of words.  This helps them build their own vocabulary and improve their understanding when they read.  Reading is an essential part of a student’s success.  The value of a book can be seen through the sparks of imagination in our children and their increased stimulation of curiosity from the text that they have read.  From June 1, 2018, to August 15, 2018, Cumberland County’s Public Libraries will sponsor Summer Reading Programs for children of all ages!  It is highly recommended that children continue to expand their minds through reading this summer!  Visit the Cumberland County’s Public Libraries site listed below or visit any of the regional libraries to find out more about this wonderful enrichment program.
