ANNOUNCEMENTS
Summer Reading Program

The 2021 Summer Reading Program was originally planned as a day camp that would provide in-person reading instruction to elementary school children from College Park. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the regular program is unable to operate this summer. In lieu of the day camp, the 2021 Summer Reading Program will continue to support children’s summer reading skills virtually instead by providing access to books in print and online.

To participate, you will need to register your child(ren) here. Participation is limited to students who reside within the City of College Park. Materials will be provided while supplies last between July 19 and August 6, 2021 and are on a first come, first serve basis. Proof of residency may be required. Support to participating students will be provided by Dr. Ayanna Baccus, Reading Specialist from the University of Maryland.

Each child will receive a Scholastic Summer Book Packet that includes 5-6 books, a journal, an activity sheet, a summer reading postcard, and colored pencils. Packets are packaged individually and organized by grade level, language (English or Spanish), and theme (fiction, informational, STEM, etc.). Additionally, individual EPIC book subscriptions for the remainder of the summer will be provided for each child. The EPIC books website is an online digital library of children’s picture books, trade books, and novels.

This program is made possible through partnership with Maryland National Capital Park and Planning (M-NCPPC). For more information, email families@collegeparkmd.gov.
