York County Libraries (YCL) and Mission Destiny Helicopter have teamed up to take the rewards for reading and learning over the summer months to new heights. YCL SummerQuest participants, ages 5 to 18, have the unique opportunity to win a helicopter ride for completing 800 minutes or more of reading and activity minutes this summer.  
A winner from each library will be randomly selected to take a ride in Mission Destiny’s Robinson R-44 Raven 2 helicopter on Saturday, August 17th.  Plus, the SummerQuest participant who achieves the top number of reading and activity minutes will be flown into the PeoplesBank Park to throw out the first pitch of the York Revolution game on Sunday, August 18th.  
SummerQuest is a program that provides opportunities for kids and teens to stay active and keep learning during the summer break.  This year’s theme: A Universe of Stories invites exploration of space. Libraries across the county have planned over 800 free activities for children and teens this summer.   Thanks to the generous support of sponsors, the York Water Company and Wellspan Health, there is no cost to participate in the program which runs through August 18.    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.  For more information about SummerQuest, go to summerquest.yorklibraries.org.
