Summer with Your Library 2021: Tails and Tales!

Get ready to join us for some summer fun! Pick up or download the Summer Reading Log and get reading to earn prizes and entries into sweepstakes drawings! Then turn to the calendar jam packed with Tails and Tales of fun like live performances, Pet Portraits and Storybook Strolls with the Allegany County Animal Shelter, summer book discussions, and more!

Most students lose an average of one month’s school learning of comprehension and vocabulary skills over the summer months.  Summer Reading Programs were originally designed by public libraries to help elementary-aged students avoid summer learning loss by encouraging them to read during the months they were out of school with engaging programs and incentives.  Summer with Your Library promotes reading through fun themes, events, prizes, and activities for library patrons of all ages.  But the benefits of participating in Summer Reading go beyond the great prizes and events; students who participate in public library summer reading programs score higher on reading achievement tests at the beginning of the next school year and report greater enjoyment of recreational reading.

ACPS Students, double up on your summer fun! Write your reads on the ACPS Summer Reading Challenge Log too!
