Queen Anne’s County Free Library Launches Summer Reading Program

Readers of all ages will explore the night this summer as the Queen Anne’s County Free Library presents “Dream Big—READ!” during its annual summer reading program. The 2012 summer reading program is open to young people, from babies through teens, with programs, story hours, a reading club, and more.  Beginning on June 11 and continuing through July 28, readers can pick up their independent summer reading club materials.

Families with children from birth through age 5 are invited to join the Read-To-Me club. They will receive a game board with literacy activities for child and caregiver to complete together, along with a suggested reading list of bedtime stories, nursery rhymes, and concept books.

Children entering kindergarten through grade 5 will receive a summer reading bag that includes a reading log, game board, sticker, and bookmark.

Teens are invited to participate in “Own the Night,” a summer reading program for rising 6th-12th graders, which pairs a game board with peer book reviews. Special teen events include book discussions, a teen writers group, creation of a LEGO® skyline, and an opportunity to make no-sew fleece blankets for a local children’s hospital.

A complete calendar of events will be included in each summer reading bag. Events calendars can also be found online at www.quan.lib.md.us/storytime.php for children and at www.quan.lib.md.us/teensandadults.php for teens.
