  • How to Prevent the Summer Slide
    Posted on: Tuesday, July 10, 2018

    The summer slide is learning loss that happens during the summer when a child goes for an extended period without reading or engaging in learning activities. This can cause children to get behind in school and result in the loss of up to two months of reading and learning achievement. This time adds up, causing them to lose years of learning achievement with each passing summer. The summer slide accounts for two-thirds of the achievement gap in high school students.

    Posted on: Monday, July 02, 2018

    After careful review and consideration, Metro Libary will discontinue the Freegal Music service. The last day of service will be July 23, 2018. Music that you have downloaded to your computer directly from the Freegal website is already yours to keep. However, music you have downloaded from the Freegal app must be exported to your computer in order for you to keep it.
