Summer Reading kicks off on Monday, June 26!

"Build a Better World" Summer Reading Program

Build a Better WorldThe Camden County Library System is excited to announce its 2017 summer reading program. This year’s program, “Build a Better World,” is designed to keep children and students reading and learning throughout the summer, while having the chance to win some awesome prizes along the way.

Participants can sign up at their local Camden County library branch and start tracking their reading and earning rewards right away. Library staff will be ready to help students and children sign up starting on June 26, and the program will continue through August 4. Prizes range from small toys to books to keep, and some lucky participants could even win more exciting prizes like tickets to the Philadelphia Art Museum or Longwood Gardens!

Build a Better World“Reading is the key to the growth and development of young minds,” said Freeholder William Moen, the Camden County Board of Freeholder’s liaison to the library system. “The county is committed to doing everything it can to help young people in pursuit of that goal, and we’re excited that this program does exactly that.”

Branches will be holding kickoff events on June 26 with varying forms of entertainment which are suitable for all ages. Times and performers vary from branch to branch, so check the Events Calendar for days and times. 

Young readers won’t be limited to just reading about building a better world though, they’ll get to see how a better world is built firsthand thanks to the Library's School Supply Drive. Each branch will be holding a school supply drive to help make sure that every student has the tools they need to succeed. Recipients and desired materials will vary by branch, so make sure to check with your local branch to learn how you can best help, and how you can show that building a better world starts in your community!

“It’s important that we show our children and young adults that making a difference takes more than just talk,” Moen said. “This is a wonderful opportunity for us to lead by example and help our communities.”
