Without the financial support of the Friends of the Ripon Public Library, this and many other library programs and events would not be possible. Statewide assessments show that reading skills decline as kids move from early education to high school. In response, the Division for Libraries, Technology and Community Learning launched an initiative to support Wisconsin's drive to create the most literate citizenry in the nation. Summer reading programs like this are just one way that libraries contribute to the initiative.
