Thank you to everyone who attended FunFest 2022! We look forward to seeing you next year!
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. There is food, music, face painting, balloon art and more.
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.
