HoCo Library's "Be Book Smart" summer program

     The HoCo Library's summer reading program has partnered with Macy's to help more kids get reading material this year.  Here is how you can help the effort:

      "Did you know that children in low-income families tend to lose up to three months of reading skills when school is out? Howard County Library System (HCLS), RIF and Macy’s are teaming up again this summer to help get books to the children who need them most.

As a local partner for the Be Book Smart campaign, we are able to give each of our youngest age readers (infant to age 5) a book for completing summer reading activities.

But we can't do it without you.

When you give $3 at your local Macy’s from June 21 – July 12, you’ll get $10 off a purchase of $30 PLUS 20% or 15% off storewide!* Macy’s will donate 100% of every $3 towards books for participants in HCLS' Summer Reading Clubs.

Be Book Smart this summer and join us to support children’s education and save big!

Happy Reading – and Shopping!"
