Largo, MD – September is Library Card Sign-up Month! Check out our newly designed, bright, cheerful children’s library card available at all Prince George’s County Memorial Library System branches. Visit our newest themed-children’s area, Discovery Reef at our New Carrollton Branch that reopens September 26. This children’s area features a 270-gallon salt water aquarium, colorful overhead lighting that simulates the underwater experience, a reef wall seating area complete with life-like exotic fish, a storytime room that replicates a deep sea habitat and a glowing tube of moving bubbles.
Parents and guardians don’t miss out! Register your children under the age of five now in our Ready 2 Read Books from Birth program. Build your children’s library and vocabulary with a free book every month prior to their 5th birthday! Visit our Ready 2 Read Centers available at every branch. These early literacy interactive spaces provide young children with hands-on experiences and activities, such as blocks, dramatic play and puzzles. Families are encouraged to talk, sing, read, draw/write, play and learn together every day @ your library!
