Summer Break Baltimore is a fun, free program for all ages that encourages literacy and learning in our community all summer long.
Thank You for Joining Us!
Summer Break Baltimore 2023 has wrapped up after a successful summer of reading, events, and activities! During the months of June, July, and August, participants used raffle tickets to log the books they read and the programs they attended during the summer.
Prizes included gift cards to local attractions and book stores, tech gadgets, summer toys, and more. Each Summer Break Baltimore participant also received a free Summer Break Baltimore t-shirt, and one free book per month to add to their home library.
