The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair would like to invite children ages 2–12 to participate in our MCAC summer reading program.

In order to take part, a child must select 5 books to read independently or have the books read to them by a parent prior to the Fair and complete their participation card. You can obtain a summer reading card by attending a library visit with our Royal Court or by stopping by the Fair office after July 1.

Once the card is complete and turned in during the designated times listed on the card, the child will receive a coupon for a free soda from the Big Cheese, free ice-cream cone from the Dairy Bar, and free ride for their efforts.
