The Montgomery County Public Libraries Summer Read and Learn program for children and teenagers begins tomorrow and runs through Sept. 10.

This year’s program theme is “Build a Better World.”

“The program offers children exciting reading and educational activities. Participants can earn online badges and prizes (while supplies last) or raffle entries for completing tracks. Teens are also encouraged to participate in the program by reading and completing book reviews to earn badges and prizes,” according to a press release.

The program’s events will include music, storytelling, science- and animal-themed activities.

Check the Silver Spring (900 Wayne Ave.) and Long Branch (8800 Garland Ave.) library’s event schedule to see what’s planned for each week.
