The school year is winding down and that means it’s time for Summer Quest 2022! Summer Quest is a celebration of reading and learning that takes place in Delaware County libraries during the summer months. This year’s Summer Quest theme is Oceans of Possibilities, and many of the County libraries’ programs and activities will dive into the world of oceans and explore their history, sea-life, conservation and more.
This year’s countywide Summer Quest programming will include special kick-off events at each library. Residents are invited to Pirates Lost at Sea, a thrilling action-packed adventure about a crew of pirates marooned on a desert island. Or they can explore the life of the ancient seas in Dinosaur Dig: An Ancient Undersea Reptile Show. Maybe an outdoor movie night is more your style? There’s something for everyone to enjoy!
The program begins June 6 and libraries invite students to stop in, complete a short activity, and earn a “brag tag.” Students can visit all 27 participating locations to complete a game sheet and be entered into a grand prize raffle.
Wildlife Education programs from the Center for Aquatic Sciences and Two of a Kind will also be taking place in libraries this summer. The programs are funded by a grant from The Community’s Foundation.
Summer Quest 2022 also includes online reading challenges in the Beanstack app. There is something for all ages, from newborns to adults. Log books, complete activities, and write book reviews to earn raffle tickets and enter to win prizes, all while learning about oceans!
“Summer Quest helps to decrease the summer slide and increase children’s enjoyment of reading, reading skills, and reading by choice,” said Cheri Crow, Youth Services Coordinator. “We also hope it will help them discover the wonder of the public library and all it has to offer.”
