Summer Reading Club



Summer Reading Club 2014 has ended. We're busy planning for 2015.


Frequently Asked Questions about the Summer Reading Program


  • How do I get involved with Summer Reading?

    Register for the 2014 Summer Reading Club online, or you can visit your local Baltimore County Public Library at any time during 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!  Check with your branch for prices and size availability.

  • What will I be doing?

    You can read magazines, newspapers, books from a school reading list, or any book that you like! The main thing is ... READ!

  • 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.


  • Am I too old for Summer Reading?

    No! There's a teen program just for middle school students. And if you have some summer reading assignments from school, you can read books from that reading list as part of the library's Summer Reading Club! If you are in high school, or even older, you can participate online in BCPL's Goodreads Group and win prizes.





The Summer Reading Program is a nationwide cooperative library project.
Local participants include the Maryland State Department of Education
and public libraries in Maryland.
