Tails and Tales Summer Reading Challenge Registration
June 21, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
School is almost out and that means it’s time for Summer Reading at Worcester County Library (WCL). From June 21 to Aug. 6, WCL encourages reading by providing prizes and special activities to keep kids and teens engaged and entertained during those long summer months away from school. This year’s theme is Tails and Tales, with stories and activities focusing on animals and the natural world.
“Reading together as a family helps prevent summer learning loss and encourages strong communication and bonding,” says Assistant Director Rachael Stein. “In addition, we’re thrilled to be able to offer a variety of outdoor activities at our library branches this year!”
The event kicks off with walk-up registration events throughout the week of June 21. Families that register at these events will go home with a t-shirt and a swag bag full of goodies (while supplies last).
- Snow Hill Branch— Monday, June 21 from 10:30 to 12:00 or from 5:00 to 6:30.
- Ocean City Branch— Tuesday, June 22 from 10:30 to 12:00 or from 5:00 to 6:30.
