Students invited to visit all 28 Delco libraries this summer
Delaware County is proud to announce the kick-off of 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 28 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.
“Delaware County 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 began on June 17 and ends on July 26. 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. Young readers who visit all 28 Delaware County libraries will receive 2 free tickets to a Philadelphia Union soccer game.
Journey Across Delco is just one of many great summer programs offered by Delaware County Libraries. For a full list of summer activities, visit www.delcolibraries.org
