In recognition of NASA’s first all-female spacewalk, York County Libraries have revealed the theme for the upcoming SummerQuest learning program earlier than usual.  This year’s theme centers on “A Universe of Stories”.  According to York County Libraries Youth Services Director Paula Gilbert, this year’s program will encourage participants to learn about space, science, and the world around them.  “Our libraries will be offering hundreds of free programs for children and teens from birth to eighteen,” says Gilbert.  “In addition, there will be opportunities for scouts to earn badges, families to explore the trails through the very popular “GO York!  Explore the Universe!” physical activity program and stargazing with the York County Astronomical Society.”  Early online registration for SummerQuest begins Sunday, May 19 at summerquest.yorklibraries.org.  The program runs from June 1 through August 18.  
 
 SummerQuest is a program that provides opportunities for kids and teens to stay active and keep learning during the summer break.  Thanks to the generous support of sponsors, the York Water Company and Wellspan Health, there is no cost to participate in the program.  York County Libraries include 13 libraries that provide the latest in print and electronic information, best sellers, Wi-Fi, story times, book discussions and more.
