Keep the Kids Learning While Having Fun this Summer
SummerQuest Early Online Registration Starts May 14
YORK, PA – Early online registration for the York County Libraries “All Together Now” SummerQuest program starts Sunday, May 14 at yorklibraries.org/summerquest. The annual summer learning program features activities for children and teens from birth to 18. Each participant needs their own library card which is available at no charge at any YCL location and online at yorklibraries.org.
“YCL’s SummerQuest offers engaging programs that make learning over the summer months fun,” says York County Library President Robert F. Lambert. “Across the county, our youth services team offers interesting activities geared specifically to different age groups including young children, elementary and middle school students and teens. They also plan events that the entire family can enjoy together.”
SummerQuest begins Thursday, June 1 and marks the first day to pick up a registration packet at the library. Participants are encouraged to complete 800 minutes of reading and activity time during the program that runs through Sunday, August 20. “They pick the activities they want to do,” says Lambert. “The key is that they are staying school ready by keeping their minds active through reading and learning during summer break.”
Thanks to the generous support of The York Water Company, WellSpan Health, and The GIANT Company, the SummerQuest program is provided free of cost to participants. Additionally, many local businesses donate prizes to encourage kids to keep reading and to stay active over the summer months.
York County Libraries include 13 libraries that provide the latest in print and electronic information, best sellers, Wi-Fi, story times, book discussions and more. Their librarians are passionate advocates for lifelong learning, providing opportunities and resources for all ages. Through early childhood literacy programs, they ignite a love of reading and learning in young children and empower parents as their children’s first teachers.
