Prince George’s County Memorial Library System’s Book Crawl is a series of pop-up outreach programs created to engage the adult population, local businesses and community partners in Prince George’s County.

This brought drag bingo to breweries, crafting to coffee shops, and Name That Tune to bars to create new library users, advocates and partnerships.
