Each year, the Adams County Library hosts FunFest at the Gettysburg Rec Park. FunFest is our free event that celebrates the kick-off into SummerQuest, the ACLS summer learning program. FunFest encourages children and families to participate in SummerQuest, as well as experience everything the community has to offer. We invite community organizations and businesses to host vendor booths with activities for children and information for parents.
Adams County Public Libraries are a vital part of our community's learning network. The need for free, high-quality programs for children and youth that are both fun and educational is critical during the summer months when they are susceptible to what is referred to as the "summer slide". In order to engage the children and youth of Adams County, both physically and mentally, we offer our annual SummerQuest program. The program provides children the opportunity to experience everything the library has to offer through leisure reading, virtual programs, and participation in a variety of activities.
There will be a DJ by HD Entertainment, balloons and facepainting by Adventure in Fun, a .5 race, storytimes with costume characters and over 30 booths of activities for children. Plus a variety of food vendors! See who will be joining the fun below.
