Summer @ Your Library 2020


The 2019 World Series Champion 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 this summer. The Nationals and PGCMLS are partnering to present “Imagine Your Story,” a virtual “Summer @ Your Library” (S@YL) program for all ages that will run from May 18 through August 21. “Imagine Your Story” is the first online-only summer reading and engagement program in the history of the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System, ensuring that all Prince Georgians can safely engage with the Library and our beloved hometown baseball team as the community recovers from the public health emergency.

More than a traditional summer reading program, S@YL encourages children, teens, and adults to read 30 minutes each day, attend virtual programs (from yoga and puppet shows to musical performances and read-alouds), explore the wide range of streaming movies and music in the 85+ online library resources, and participate in interactive social media challenges.
