Summer’s here and with it means plenty of time to lounge by the pool or in a hammock with a good book.
Montgomery County Public Libraries launched its summer reading program today, providing reading lists and summer activities for youth around the county. Families can sign up for the program and log the number of books they read by visiting the library website. Those who read five or more books this summer will be able to print out a certificate showing the accomplishment.
Reading lists, specified for each age and grade level, are available on the library website. This year’s themes are “Read to Me” for kids through preschool, “Dream Big” for children in kindergarten thru sixth grade and "Own the Night" for teenagers.
Events for kids, families and teens are scheduled for libraries across the county.
June’s family events at the Gaithersburg library include:
"John Henry, the Guitar Playing Man" - John Henry, the Guitar Playing Man combines music and movement in an upbeat, interactive program for all ages.
"Music Together With Nancy Nuttle" - Fun family activities that help children make music. Program includes songs, movement and music activities. For newborns to 5-year-olds and their caregivers.
