The goal is to continue reading, learning and attending educational events throughout the summer. PGCMLS library branches will host summer events from Monday, June 12 through Saturday, August 19, 2017. In addition to individual learning activities, participants can attend events and workshops based on Building a Better World.

 

We will celebrate avid readers and inspire new and reluctant readers through STEM activities, VOX books, ebooks/audiobooks, Playaway Launchpads, Ready 2 Read Backpacks and more. A weekly book recommendation and activity progress report will be emailed to the participants to keep the momentum going! Library customers completing the 2017 Summer @ Your Library program will get a free book and an entry to win grand prizes. 

 

Supersize Your Summer Fun @ Your Library!
