Fort Knox is one of an estimated 250 military bases participating in a summer reading program this year themed “Reading is So Delicious.”
Summer reading is a long-time staple of the Barr Memorial Library on Fort Knox. It added a program tailored to teenagers three years ago.
Larra Clark, spokeswoman for the national iRead Summer Reading Program, said in a statement summer reading participation has been increasing overall among libraries on military bases in an effort to encourage reading and reduce the effects of summer learning loss.
