Patch Power!: Summer Quest 2019 encourages participants to explore new topics and complete a variety of activities to earn patches. Children will be able to earn their patches by completing independent activities on their own, at home (and showing their work or creations when they report to the library) or by attending library programs specific to that patch. Any combination of four independent activities and programs will earn a patch.

The library staff has planned lots of interesting activities and programs for each patch - some for preschool and kindergarten participants and some for children entering grades 1 to 5. The program listing on the Event Calendar will indicate which programs will help complete each patch. In addition, many of the libraries in the Chester County Libary System are offering Patch Power! programs, and you can attend programs at any of those libraries for credit toward patches. Check with your local library for dates and information.
