"Public libraries, through their summer reading programs, put books in the hands of children. This is the best antidote for the 'summer slide' in children's reading achievement. Access to books and library programs over the summer results in more reading which, in turn, results in improved reading skills."
-- Assistant Commissioner for Libraries and New York's State Librarian Bernard A. Margolis
