Any person under the age of 18 can tell you exactly how many school days, week days, total days, minutes, even seconds stand between them and their summer vacation. Even as adults we are always vaguely aware of the school year calendar. By the middle of June, we’re feeling summer, too. Sure, kids are excited about summer, but often parents are left wondering, “What am I going to do with my kids all summer?” Enter: Baltimore City Super Summer!
You may have seen or heard about Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake stopping by the Central Library along with Schools CEO Andres Alonso and Police Commissioner Fred Bealefeld. If you missed it, check out our blog post here. These folks helped kick off our Summer Reading Program and introduce Baltimore City Super Summer.
Baltimore City Super Summer is an innovative partnership between the City of Baltimore, Baltimore City Public Schools, and nonprofits like us. This partnership helps bring learning, meals, reading, and fun to kids in Baltimore during the summer. You can check out the website or call 2-1-1 to get more information. There are incredible opportunities like full-day learning academies, camps, free meals, and of course, the Summer Reading Program at the library!
Summer Reading at all Pratt locations is about more than just books. We have tons of FREE programs for kids and teens. Learn about reptiles at our “Reptiles Alive!” program. You won’t believe your eyes at “Dreams, Schemes, and Magic Things!” with Magic Mike. Become a “Song Imagineer” with Ray Owen. Try your hand at the Wii, spend the afternoon making crafts, or join us for a Monday afternoon movie.
We can’t wait to help you stay entertained, engaged, and learning at the library all summer long!
