"Imagine Your Story" Summer Reading Program Registration starts Wednesday, June 10

Imagine Your Story SR Resized

Kids, Tweens, and Teens stop by the Library starting Wednesday, June 10 to sign-up for this year's Summer Reading Program.

The Summer Reading Program will continue through August 10, and, as in previous years, children, tweens, and teens who participate can read books to earn a grand prize. Children, ages 2 - 7, can read 25 books to receive a grand prize; Tweens, ages 8 - 12, can read 10 books to receive a grand prize; Teens, ages 13-19, can read 8 books to receive a grand prize. To sign up, parents and caregivers should stop by the library to register their child or children for this year's program. The last day to turn in reading logs and receive a prize will be Saturday, August 15 at 5:00 PM.

This year's Summer Reading Program theme is "Imagine Your Story" and, during this year's event, no in-person programs will be held at the library. Instead, children, tweens, teens, and their families will be encouraged to view and/or participate in various videos and programs posted on the library's Facebook page throughout the summer.

Only books and audiobooks borrowed from Bossard Library will count toward each participant's total. E-books and digital audiobooks borrowed from the Ohio Digital Library and Hoopla are also eligible to be counted in the Summer Reading Program.

Be sure to view the library's virtual story times on Facebook, as well as an upcoming series of videos from Mr. Puppet, which will be posted beginning later this week. More exciting programs will be announced soon through the library's website and Facebook page.

For those without internet access, please stop by the library to pick up an early literacy packet. Teens are also encouraged to follow Bossard Library's teen Instagram page: @bossardlibraryteens.
