[ARCHIVED] Carteret County Public Libraries offer summer reading program

Summer Reading at Carteret Libraries

CARTERET COUNTY, NC (June 13, 2023) – The Carteret County Public Library System’s Summer Reading program is back from June 17-August 5, 2023. This year’s theme, ‘All Together Now,’ emphasizes the importance of community and bringing people together.

This year’s Summer Reading program has something for all ages. Activities are designed for toddlers, kids, teens, and adults, with fun activities to complete that encourage participants to learn more about library services and programs and to read books to meet goals and win prizes.

The Summer Reading program combats learning loss during time away from school, especially during the summer break. The program keeps young minds active through reading and educational activities.

“We firmly believe that summer reading programs are more than just a fun activity for children and families. It's a powerful tool that brings our community together, fostering a love of reading, learning, and growing all together now,” said Dorothy Howell, director of the Carteret County Public Library System. “By participating in summer reading programs, we can create a shared experience that transcends age, background, and individual differences, and strengthens the fabric of our community. So, let's read, learn, and grow ‘all together now’ this summer and beyond!”

The kickoff event will be held Saturday, June 17, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Each branch will host and have larger than life board games and snacks, and participants will walk away with reading materials and other prizes. In addition, our favorite Morehead City Marlins mascot Finn will be visiting select branches throughout the day promoting the Morehead City Marlins’ summer initiative, ‘Slide into Reading.’
