Students invited to visit all 26 Delco libraries this summer
Delaware County Council Chairman John McBlain joined members of the Delaware County Library System, Norwood Public Library and local children and their parents on June 18 to announce Journey Across Delco.
Children in Delaware County can pick up a free passport style booklet at their local library and journey across Delco to all 26 member libraries in the county this summer. Journey Across Delco is geared towards children in pre-school and early elementary school. Booklets are currently available at all Delaware County Libraries (DCL). Students can participate in various activities at each library, check out a new book and have their passport stamped.
“Council and our Library System worked to create this program to encourage young readers to stay engaged and enthused about reading over their summer break,” said Chairman John McBlain. “Programs such as this encourage literacy and foster a love for reading in our youth.”
Journey Across Delco begins on June 16 and ends on July 27. Participants who visit at least five libraries during that time will be invited to a party in Rose Tree Park on August 7th from 1-3pm.
“Journey Across Delco gives children the opportunity to stay engaged over the summer by participating in various activities in our member libraries. We hope that everyone gets a chance to travel all around Delaware County to visit our 26 member libraries and explore the amazing benefits they offer to library card holders.”
Journey Across Delco is just one of many great summer programs offered by Delaware County Libraries. For a full list of summer activities, click here.
