Record Breaking Summer

   
Cumberland Public Libraries is challenging kids (and kids at heart) to break a world record to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Guinness World Records!

Practice your record breaking skills all summer long! You can try 9 different record challenges anytime starting at your library’s Summer Reading Club Kick-off Party until August 29.

Record setters will have their names added to the library’s leaderboard every week & receive a ballot for a special end-of-summer prize draw!

Ask your local library for more details!
