Summer Adventures Treasure Chest

Field Trips, Reading Lists, and Games for Summer Fun Available on NCBLA Website

Whether your summer adventures are taking place at a sun-splashed beach or the cool mountains, at Grandma’s house or your own backyard, be sure to give reading a starring role! A great place to start looking for summer reading fun is your local library. Almost every public library sponsors special programs, reading contests, book clubs, and free passes to area museums and attractions. And remember that the librarians are also a rich resource. They can offer expert advice about completing summer projects and book suggestions for even the most reluctant readers. 

You can also discover exciting summer learning activities on the NCBLA's Summer Adventures Treasure Chest, which is overflowing with field trip ideas, engaging book titles, progressive story games, and resource articles to help you make reading a pleasure for all the young people in your life.

And don't forget to keep up with the adventures of Nancy and Joe in the latest episodes of The Exquisite Corpse Adventure, which continue to be published every two weeks on Read.Gov.
