About Summer Learning
Summer Learning is the cornerstone of the Library's summer initiatives.
- Our Mission Statement is Learning For All: SJPL is a learning institution. From our Storytimes, coding classes to our Homework Clubs and ESL classes, SJPL lives up to its mission statement to “enrich lives by fostering LIFELONG LEARNING and by ensuring that EVERY MEMBER of the community has access to a vast array of ideas and information."
- Reading is Learning: We believe that reading is learning, especially for youth. For younger children, reading fosters learning about the world around them, and prepares them for the challenges of entering school. For older children and teens, reading helps keep their minds active and engaged, reinforcing and facilitating learning.
