The Brooklyn Park branch of the county library system is right in the center of BP, and the Brooklyn branch of the Baltimore's Enoch Pratt Free Library is a short walk from the county line. For children in kindergarten to eighth grade, it means being able to participate in two summer library programs. "Catch the Reading Wave," the county program, begins tomorrow at the library, 1 E. 11th Ave. Participants may register at any time, even after the program has started.
