Summer is a time for play and beaches and no homework, but kids can fall into a slump by not keeping up those reading skills over the summer months.  Reading is fun and builds skills that last a lifetime but for some kids, access to libraries during the summer months can be difficult and according to Portsmouth has a solution.

Portsmouth is lucky to have Kelly Moore who has been running the Pop-Up library for the last three years, mostly out of individual cars. Thanks to a grant from the Clipper Foundation, she was able to upgrade to the Library Squad trailer plastered with cool decals.

According to, there are books available for FREE from ages birth to 18.  Some parents are even getting involved in reading teen novels with their children.   Seacoastonline shares the story of Kelly Moore and her goal to get kids reading during the summer months. Stops include Wamesit Place, Gosling and Osprey Landing.  Best of all, the kids can keep the books for free.  Sounds like a win/win.
