Adams County Public Libraries are a vital part of our community's learning network. FunFest is our free event that celebrates the kick-off into SummerQuest, the ACLS summer learning program. 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. This year’s theme is ‘Oceans of Possibilities.’
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 a vendor booth at the event where they provide a craft or activity for children to celebrate our Ocean theme this year.
There will be food, music, face painting, balloon art and more. This year the Dairy Association Truck will be selling their popular Farm Show milkshakes and the Gettysburg Fire Department will have their truck on display.
