The Washington Nationals has partnered with the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System to present “Imagine Your Story,” a virtual Summer @ Your Library program for all ages that runs from May 18 through Aug. 21.

“Imagine Your Story,” also presented in Spanish, is the first online-only summer reading and engagement program in the library’s history.

“The Washington Nationals are glad to be the presenting sponsor of this program and to partner with Prince George’s County Memorial Library System,” said Gregory McCarthy, the Nationals’ senior vice president for community engagement. “In these trying times, having access to a good book is more critical than ever and we are proud to help bring the joys of reading to as many residents of Prince George’s County as possible. Combating the summer slide requires families, schools, libraries and the private sector to work together.”

The Nationals are generously making a wide range of online content available for county residents through the program, including:

– Reading Activities: Storytime with the World Series Champs, Reading Activities in English and Spanish, and Books for Adult Nats Fans videos.
– Summer Slugger Math & Literacy Activities for 5th and 6th graders.
– Home and Away with the Washington Nationals content: STEM, exercise, and reading activities.
