Time is running out for summer reading, but it’s not too late

Time is running out, but it’s not too late!

Explore Summer Reading 2017

With school just around the corner, it is time to dust off those thinking caps and get ready to learn. But don’t do it alone, stop by your closest Prince William Public Library branch and score some fun prizes while getting back in the groove.

In less than six visits (YES, six visits), you will have the opportunity to win some amazing food coupons, free books and be entered to win a brand-new flip laptop (for kids) or a Beats Pill by Dre® (for young adults).  Either visit pwcgov.org/summerreading or head on over to any Prince William Public Library branch to sign up. Once you have your passport (for kids) or punch card (for young adults), just tell us what you’re reading each time you visit the library and watch the stamps and punches roll in.

Don’t worry, adults, because you can participate in Explore Summer Reading, too! You don’t even have to register. Whenever you come into the library, fill out an entry form with the name of a book you’ve read. We will hold a drawing for a Target gift card at each of our eleven branches each week for all nine weeks of summer reading.

We haven’t even gotten to the best part… the EVENTS! We have animals, insects, magic shows, puppets, music, and theater all at the library. For instance, the Hampstead Stage Company will present ”Beauty and the Beast” at Montclair Library, while Uncle Devin will show off his school house rock at Bull Run. For all of you gamers out there, Central Library has an Edge Party Trailer filled with the latest games and consoles coming out. Furthermore, we have solar eclipse viewing parties at happening at several of our branches. And this is all happening in August!

So come and join us to watch, read, learn, and enjoy the last bit of summer, as the programs described above are just a small sampling of the happenings at your Prince William Public Library in August. For a complete calendar, plus admission information, visit our online calendar of events at pwcgov.org/library/events or pick up a copy of our summer 2017 Explore magazine at any branch.

We’d love to see your photos! Tag us in your Explore Summer Reading fun at the library this summer using the hashtag #PWPLSsummer. You can find us on Facebook, Instagram (@pwpls), Pinterest (/pwpls), and Twitter (@PrinceWMlibrary).
