BCPS school libraries to offer summer hours, activities

One of the best things about summer? More time to read! And some Baltimore County Public Schools’ libraries are offering special summer hours during which students can check out great books. The libraries will also offer opportunities for students to write stories, use computers, and engage in makerspace and other fun learning activities.

Here are summer hours at the 11 BCPS school libraries in eastern Baltimore. (Please contact the schools for more information.)
