Aquatic Adventures for Kids

Just keep swimming, we mean reading! The Read to Reef Book Club is back this month and Enoch Pratt Free Library is excited to offer these fun books that are sure to make a splash.

Not familiar with Read to Reef? In March, the program allows Baltimore-area children in fifth grade and younger to receive a Read to Reef bookmark at their local branch of Enoch Pratt Free Library (while supplies last).

After students read five aquatic or conservation-themed books they can exchange their completed bookmark for up to four admission tickets to the National Aquarium. For a full list of the instructions and details on Read to Reef, please visit here.
