Frederick County Public Libraries’ Summer Challenge

Frederick County Public Libraries, (FCPL) is excited to welcome back readers and explorers of all ages for our annual summer reading program being held June 1 to August 15.

As in years past, this summer we’re challenging you to read books and visit community destinations. Read for at least twenty days this summer, and you’ll not only build a healthy new habit, you will earn rewards.

Log your reading with our reading log (available at your local library), through the Beanstack app, or online. Earn a ticket for each day you read and each destination you visit. Tickets earned can be entered into prize drawings held on June 16, July 16, and August 16.

This year’s finisher prize is a best-selling, brand new book. Grand prizes include American Girl Dolls, skateboards, bicycles, building block sets, telescopes, Chromebooks, kayaks and more!

Summer reading programs are designed to help combat “summer slide,” and help students maintain academic skills and knowledge while they’re on break.
