Read to Reef Book Club

Chapter 1 of Read to Reef Has Come to an End

Baltimore is packed with readers—so many, in fact, that the inaugural Read to Reef Book Club has already given away its last voucher to the Aquarium.

But don’t fret! The National Aquarium’s partnership with Enoch Pratt Free Library continues through the summer with Pratt Library’s Summer Reading Program, yet another opportunity for kids to earn a free Aquarium visit through reading, and will continue into the fall with a second season of the Read to Reef Book Club. Check back for more information, or sign up here to receive updates in our Aquamail newsletter.

Keep up the good reading!

It's Your Aquarium

To celebrate our local roots and to give back to the community that has given us so much, the Aquarium is proud to host a number of programs that allow locals to visit their Aquarium for less. Beginning in January 2016, the National Aquarium is partnering with the Enoch Pratt Free Library system to distribute 10,000 free Aquarium passes to families at library branches in Baltimore City.

By connecting our city youth’s love of reading to the aquatic world, we hope to drive awareness of our blue planet and the critical responsibility each of us has to protect it. We have the opportunity to raise an environmentally conscious generation that will respect and preserve the ocean that gives us life. Knowledge is a critical tool in achieving that goal—and what better place to find it than in a book?
