Frequently Asked Questions about the Summer Reading Club for Ages Birth to Five


If someone can't read yet, can they still participate?


Absolutely! You’re never too young to join in the fun! Good listening counts for children who have not yet learned to read, and there are fun activities too. The Read-to-Me Summer Reading Club is for kids ages birth to age 5.


How do I get involved with Summer Reading?


Parents and caregivers can register children for the Summer Reading Club online, or visit your local Baltimore County Public Library at any time during the program which starts in June 2014.


How much does Summer Reading cost?


Nothing ... it's absolutely free! But you can help support Summer Reading by buying a really cool t-shirt. They come in all sizes for the whole family, and you can collect a different one every year!


What will we be doing?


Parents and caregivers can read books or magazines to young children who cannot read yet. Children begining to read can read aloud to parents and caregivers. Read anything you like! The main thing is ... READ!
