Be a Hero this Summer…READ!
Every hero has a story, and children (birth to 12 years old) and teens (ages 13 through 17) – can learn about heroes and a variety of other subjects during Montgomery County Public Libraries’ (MCPL) Summer Reading program from now through August 9.
Each branch will host free programs, such as magic shows, live animals and music, with many of the programs focusing on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math). The programs are sponsored by the Friends of the Library, Montgomery County Inc.; local chapters of the Friends of the Library; and MCPL.
To ensure all children and teens can participate, any overdue fines on their library accounts can be reduced by reading and then earning “Library Bucks.” More information about this program is available at each MCPL branch.
To register, just visit any of the 21 branches or sign up on MCPL’s website at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/library.
