CENTREVILLE — The Queen Anne’s County Library is excited to announce the June 14 launch of the 2021 Summer Reading Program! This year’s program theme is “Tails and Tales” and the activities and events are sure to provide a summer full of fun for all ages!
Beginning June 14, come into either branch of the library to register for Summer Reading and get your free Summer Reading T-shirt while supplies last. Registrants will receive their Summer Reading guides and game boards to join in the fun and anyone registered can enter to win great prizes each time they visit the library. Prizes include early childhood toys, Razor scooters, LEGO sets, LED lights, corn hole set, yard Jenga game, Amazon gift cards and more. There is an end of summer free book for prize for all registrants as well.
The library is also offering an online Summer Reading option through Beanstack, a web-based Summer Reading platform, where participants can register for challenges and win prizes all Summer.
Youth Summer Reading programs include Reptile Wonders, outdoor kids’ yoga, music and craft events, and outdoor story times. Pokémon Terrarium kits, outdoor science programs and craft program are available to teen registrants. Adult participants can look forward to book clubs, fashion and sports presentations, home and jewelry arts events and outdoor yoga. Events this summer are either outside at the library branches or online, for those most comfortable participating remotely. As you can see, there is something for everyone this summer at the library.
The library has also partnered with Queen Anne’s County Parks and Recreation to offer StoryWalks at parks around the county. StoryWalks use park paths to place the pages of a story around a walking trail for readers of all ages to enjoy. These are a great way to explore the outdoors and have some fun reading a book along the way. Sudlersville, Route 18 and Long Point parks all will be participating in StoryWalks this summer.
The Summer Reading Program at the Queen Anne’s County Library is generously funded by the Friends of Queen Anne’s County Library. To learn more about the Friends, visit www.friendsofqaclibrary.org.
The library also has launched a new website at www.qaclibrary.org with a Summer Reading page full of event details, Beanstack registration, and a great video from the Youth Service Librarians. It looks like it will be a summer of fun with the Queen Anne’s County Library.
