Summer Prince George's


Enjoy the summer with reading and baseball! The Washington Nationals and Prince George’s County Memorial Library System (PGCMLS) are proud to provide creative ways for Prince Georgians to stay connected with baseball and reading. The Nationals and PGCMLS are partnering to present “Summer Prince George’s,” (SPG) a program for all ages that runs from May 16 through August 19.

More than a traditional summer reading program, SPG encourages children, teens, and adults to read 30 minutes each day, attend library programs, explore the physical collection of materials as well as a wide range of streaming movies and music in the 85+ online library resources, and participate in interactive social media challenges.

¡Disfruten del verano con la lectura y el béisbol! La Biblioteca de Prince George (PGCMLS con sus siglas en inglés) y los Washington Nationals se unen para ofrecerles una variedad de actividades creativas y divertidas. Toda la comunidad está invitada a participar en el programa "Summer Prince George’s" entre el 16 de Mayo al 19 de Agosto y además asistir a las actividades promovidas por los Washington Nationals.

Todos los días la biblioteca los invita a leer por 30 minutos al día, asistir a programas de la biblioteca, explorar una amplia gama de recursos (libros, películas y música en diversos formatos digitales) y a participar en los retos que ofrece en las redes sociales. ¡Los niños, jóvenes, y adultos pueden disfrutar de todas estas actividades y servicios de forma gratuita!
