INDIANAPOLIS — School is out for summer, but that doesn't mean you should take a vacation from reading.

The Indianapolis Public Library kicked off its summer reading program for kids Monday.

"We really know from all kinds of research that if children don't keep reading over the summer, they're going to have slippage, if you will," Jackie Nytes of the Indianapolis Public Library said. "They're going to lose some of the progress they made in the last school year."

The program runs through July 27 at all Indianapolis Public Library branches. Kids can sign up at any branch. The more books you read, the more points you get, which you can redeem for prizes.
