This summer heroes of every kind will be found at Anne Arundel County Public Library (AACPL)! It’s the time of year when the kids are out of school and families are wondering how to keep their children from saying “I’m bored”. Happily AACPL is gearing up to provide fun, interesting, and educational activities to help keep children of all ages and their families engaged. Our theme for Summer Reading Club (SRC) 2015 is: Every Hero Has a Story: Be a Hero, Read! Many kinds of heroes will be present in our programs and special activities to encourage reading and learning while having fun in the process.
