Children and teens can keep up their reading skills and help to save the Chesapeake Bay in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge! from the county’s library system, officials announced.
“Oceans of Possibilities,” this year’s challenge theme, is a partnership between the library system and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
Students who sign up for the challenge can read good books as well as participate in learning activities, in-person and virtual events.
As participants complete their reading missions, Montgomery County Public Libraries “will help plant trees, restore oyster beds, and improve animal habitats throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed,” according to a press release.
An indoor-outdoor kick-off event is planned for Saturday, June 18 at the Rockville Memorial library and will include a CBF hands-on educational table, strolling magician Abracadabra Alex, Summer Reading Challenge! sign-ups and book giveaways, and craft tables.
The challenge kicks off on Wednesday, June 15, when online sign-ups will begin, and run through August 31. Participants can also sign up at any county library.
