kids bookmarks with Summer Reading book recommendations

Don't know what to read?
Look for one of these bookmarks at your local library. The artwork was drawn by a Baltimore City kid just like you. There is a list of recommended books on the back of each bookmark or ask the librarian for help!

Special Summer Performers
Watch for special shows all summer long. The library isn't just about books and reading, it's about learning, fun, and community. As a special bonus, if you hear a story in one of the performances, you can count that story towards your 8 books in the summer reading program. Just write down the name of the story on your reading log.
