Families and readers of all ages are invited to buckle-up and head to Bucks County Free Library for Summer Quest and a summer full of fun!
Summer Quest (formerly Summer Reading) launches on Saturday, June 16, with Kick-off Fairs scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at all branches.
Kick-off Fairs will feature special guests such as Bensalem’s K-9 Unit, Sleepy Hollow Farm Petting Zoo, and Dan the Balloon Man, food trucks, face painting, obstacle courses, and other family-friendly activities.
While at the Fairs, you can pick up reading logs to track your summer reading minutes. You can also download reading logs from our Summer Quest page.
This summer, we’re asking you to help Bucks County read 4 million minutes. From June 16 through July 28, you can return to your branch to get your log stamped and add links to Bucks County’s reading chain.
Don’t forget to share what you’re reading on social media using the hashtag #BucksCountyReads.
New this year: kids can earn limited edition Badge Squad Summer Quest badges by completing challenges at the library. And they can design their own badge in our Badge Contest — more information is available on the Summer Quest reading logs.
As always, we’ll have fun and free events and performers throughout the summer including Selfie Saturdays, Li Liu: Traditions of Chinese Acrobats, and Flow Circus. To see all Summer Quest events, visit our Events calendar.
