It’s summer–your kids are free! But free to what? On nice days, they should be out enjoying the weather, running and playing. But let’s face it, Maryland’s weather is often unpredictable and sometimes unforgiving. You want them safe, out of trouble, and happy. Perhaps they can keep their brains sharp with reading. Don’t forget to get them signed up for the Library’s Summer Reading Club; what better incentive to read than a game with prizes?! And if the reading encourages some healthy lifestyle choices, all the better! Here are a few new titles at HCLS you may want get them to check out:
