SummerQuest – Shortcuts to Dillsburg Events

SummerQuest is coming soon to the Dillsburg Area Public Library, and it will feel different this year.  Events will be online unless we get the go-ahead to safely meet in small or large groups at the library.  Our 800 minute reading challenge lives on, and our programs will give kids plenty of opportunities to learn with us all summer long.

You can use the York Libraries Event Calendar to sign up for this year’s events.  Go to the Event Calendar and select the Dillsburg library to see our summer events.  This year is a great year to check out events from other York County libraries, too.  Since events are online, you don’t need to travel far to enjoy them.

Because the county-wide event calendar includes 13 libraries, it can be a little hard to navigate.  Below is a listing of shortcuts for our Dillsburg programs.  Click on the event name to go to the event’s main page.  Scroll down to the event page’s RSVP section to sign up.
