Summer Quest

From June through the first week in August, the Greensburg Hempfield Area Library and The Youngwood Area Library present hundreds of programs for children birth through teens. Our theme-based programs incorporate Common Core and include STEM/Literacy opportunities. But what allows our Summer Quest to be meaningful and productive is that our emphasis is on FUN … ALWAYS FUN!

It’s important to support your child’s learning outside of school. And over the summer it is critical. Studies indicate that library summer programs have a very positive effect on children’s literacy skills.

Our summer programming for children can include:

  • Story hours
  • Gardening
  • STEM
  • Makerspaces
  • Reading to therapy dogs
  • Book clubs
  • Whole family events
  • Performances from groups like Stage Right! and magicians
