Summer Reading

Each summer, the Adams County Library System sponsors a Summer Reading Program.  Programs occur in all the branches of the library system.  Check their websites for activities in each library.

 Dig into Reading this summer!

Dig into Reading is for children up to age 13.  Children who read for two hours each week over the 8-week program can earn six small reading incentives and two paperback books.

The Adams County Library System will begin registration for the 2013 Summer Reading Program on June 1.  This summer, all registrations and reporting will be at the library, please sign up at only one library. 

All libraries will be presenting special programs throughout the summer.  Visit your local library in person or online for a schedule of events.

This summer, each library will have three special programs sponsored by the For me, for you, for later program, a financial literacy initiative of PNC and Sesame Street Workshop.  Join in as we enjoy magic, music and stories!
