Summer Library Program
Since the summer of 2008, Central Unified School District has opened libraries at selected school sites within its jurisdiction to focus on providing area children the opportunity to visit these library sites during the summer. Central Unified understands not having public libraries in our community has created hardships on a family's ability to access quality reading materials when schools are closed. Central Unified believes in the importance of educating our community's children by helping them retain and reinforce what they learned during the school year. This year, Central Unified is opening six locations to serve community residents (see locations on page two).

Kaiser Permanente granted $7,500 to the Foundation for Central Schools to help support this effort.
