Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent S. Dallas Dance announced the start of the Baltimore County Public Library’s Summer Reading Club, according to a release from the Baltimore County government.
The Summer Reading Club is a free eight week program that encourages students to read, regardless of their age, by setting reading goals for children. Middle school aged children are able to win prizes to include gift cards to Target, AMC Theaters, Chipotle, Old Navy and more. The students also have an opportunity to win a Kindle Fire HD or admission to Oregon Ridge or Rocky Point beach, according to their website.
In 2013, the Summer Reading Club set a personal record of more than 53,600 students registered and officials expect enrollment to continue to grow, according to the release.
