Since the summer of 2009, the Boston Bruins have been partnering with the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) and the Massachusetts Library System (MLS) to present When You Read, You Score! The summer reading program encourages children and teens to read over the summer months so they may avoid the "summer slide" and maintain skills they've learned over the academic year.

Children and teens who participate in summer reading programs show an increase in vocabulary scores on standardized testing and an increase in comprehension scores. In fact, reading just 5 books over the summer can prevent summer learning loss.

To help inspire children and teens to keep reading over the summer, Bruins players, including Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, and Tuukka Rask have helped libraries develop Favorite Books of the Boston Bruins - a new recommended reads list that also includes librarian picks for the best hockey books. To see the recommend reads list, please click here.

Summer library programs are free and fun. Register at READSinMA.org or stop by your local library.
