Oceans of Possibilities are coming to the Chester County Library this summer!

• Try to read or listen to a story every day from Monday, June 6th to Sunday, August 14th.
• Use your reading record to cross off one square every day you read or listen to books for at least 30 minutes. You can become an Award-Winning Reader.
• Attend great programs for your age group.
• Come into the library between August 8th and September 11th to receive your Reading Medal for reading all summer!

Will you be traveling or not able to come into the library this summer? You might prefer the online program. Visit our site at Read Squared and complete your summer reading log and missions for patches online. Even online participants can visit the library in late August to pick up Reading Medals and Patches.

Patch Power is back with four (4) new patches to earn. Or choose to complete a card and earn a patch from previous years.

• Choose a Patch Power Patch
• Complete three (3) activities on the card.
• Share your work with a librarian and receive your patch beginning June 21st.
• This year try the Patch Power Pack. Everything you need to complete a patch is included. Choose a book and work on your patch activities at the library and receive your patch the same day! Or take it home and show your work when you return.
