An article this week in the Los Angeles Times reminded me that children's programs in our libraries help keep their skills sharp, especially during the summer when they are not in school. According to the article ("Keeping pupils' skills sharp," LAT Extra, July 7), a new study by the Rand Corporation has documented that children lose two to three months of reading and math skills while on break, and that the problem is particularly acute for lower-income children with limited access to travel, museums, libraries and other enriching experiences.

While looking at some newspaper clippings at the Costa Mesa Historical Society recently, I found one from the Globe-Herald (predecessor of the Daily Pilot) for Sept. 29, 1948. Titled "Costa Mesa Library Gives Wide Service," it noted some of the services and collections that were available there. It also listed some of the new children's books that had recently been received. One of them, for first-graders, was "Two Is a Team" by Lorraine and Jerrold Beim. This book, published in 1945, is mentioned in Elizabeth Goodenough's book, "Infant Tongues: The Voice of the Child in Literature.

The digital revolution notwithstanding, there's still plenty of pleasure to be had with books, especially for kids who visit Newport libraries this summer. To launch the literary adventure for the littlest lap-sitters up through independent readers, sign ups are underway for "Library Kids Lead the Way," the summer reading program that begins Monday. It includes a "Read-to-Me Club" for toddlers through kindergarten-age children and a "Readers' Club" for independent readers, with prize incentives for youngsters of all ages, awarded for time spent reading or listening to books.

If they want to move on, they must learn to give. It is a policy in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, and there's no way around it. Students must complete at least 40 hours of community service during their four years of high school to graduate. How students decide to spend their time varies, and results in ideas that are sometimes routine, sometimes inspired. Newport Harbor High School sophomore Natalie Cernius' idea had its genesis close to home. She started a Friday Night Club at her school in an effort to give her older brother, who is autistic, more opportunities to meet people and have fun. She said participants are special-needs teens, including those with Down syndrome, autism and physical disabilities.
