Summer Learning Program: Ocean of Possibilities

The Cañon City Public Library invites you and your family to join the excitement as they present “Ocean of Possibilities” as their 2022 Summer Learning Program.

The Cañon City Public Library encourages children and teens to stay active over the summer and have planned programs to keep them reading and learning all summer long. Many children lose ground in reading skills over the summer and begin the school year at a level lower than what they achieved the previous year. Traditionally, summer reading programs are designed to encourage children to continue reading during summer vacation to prevent the “summer slide”.  Children who join the summer library program keep their minds active and enter school in the fall ready to learn and succeed. 

The Cañon City Public library believes as parents, you are your child’s first teacher. During the first years of life, almost everything a child learns depends on experiences provided by the family. Help encourage children by looking at picture books with your children who have not learned to read and point out people, animals, and objects in the pictures. Read to your children and ask them to read to you. The library will be happy to help you find books that are just right for all ages. We hope that you and your family enjoy looking at books and reading together and that you discover the treasures of your library.

The Summer Learning Program is not just for children; the library also provides an adult Summer Program that encourages adults in our community to read at least seven books by July 15th. Adults who enter and complete the program will receive a library book bag and be eligible for grand prize incentives.

The 2022 Summer Learning Program is open to all ages and abilities and includes programs, reading incentives, prize drawings, story hours, and much more. All programs are free of charge. For more information call the library at 719.269.9020 or visit
