What is SummerQuest you ask? SummerQuest is litany of library events, take and makes, digital story times, Go Adams and many other fun things to keep children of all ages reading and engaged over the summer.

Why do we want children reading over the summer? We need to prevent the summer slide, which is a concept that has been researched since 1996. Studies show children lose significant knowledge in reading and math over the summer months.

Sherry Feeser is the youth services coordinator for the Adams County Library System.
