The Edison High School English Department continues to promote the Fairfax County Public Library summer reading program. Studies have found that reading for pleasure is beneficial for kids in many ways including keeping up their reading skills over the summer and helping them succeed in school. FCPL helps make reading fun by providing tools, access and incentives during its Summer Reading Adventure. The Summer Reading Adventure runs June 12 through August 14 and invites all children and teens—birth through high school—to read for fun over the summer. Therefore, we encourage every student to complete the necessary steps for participating in FCPL’s Summer Reading Adventure 2020: Imagine Your Story.
