Summary The summer months present a series of challenges in many communities for child health and well-being, as well as the phenomenon dubbed the "summer slide" in education retention. A "summer reading program" is a start, but libraries must learn to include STEM/STEAM activities, online technologies, and hands-on learning to attract participants. McChesney and Wunar look at innovative thinking, strategic partnerships, and ambitions vision that can help librarians revamp their summer programming.
