MCPL and our partner the Washington Nationals are teaming up to encourage reading all summer! The Nats will give all MCPL Summer Reading Challenge! participants who complete Mission 2 a voucher to attend a regular season game for free.

MCPL and our partner Chesapeake Bay Foundation are greening up Summer Reading by keeping plastic out of the waste stream. As children read and complete missions, we will help plant trees, restore oyster beds, and improve animal habitats throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Summer Reading Challenge! Kick-off Party June 18!

The 2022 Summer Reading Challenge! Kick-off party will happen rain or shine on Saturday, June 18, from 10:30 -12:00 noon at the Rockville Library. If it rains, festivities will move indoors. Outside you can visit the hands-on Chesapeake Bay Foundation table where you can explore objects that showcase efforts to Save the Bay! Meanwhile, Abracadabra Alex will be strolling through the crowd with his special ocean-themed brand of magic. Indoors, you can sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge! and pick up your free book in the first floor meeting room. Plus, children of all ages can visit the maker-tables in the atrium to create ocean-themed crafts. 

Oceans of Possibilities all Summer!
