DEARBORN – The Dearborn Public Library presents the annual Summer Reading Challenge, which runs June 20 to Aug. 14.
The Summer Reading Challenge is designed to engage and inspire patrons with programs, activities and reading. The program provides incentives and activities for entertainment and personal growth for adults and kids alike, all related to the theme “Oceans of Possibilities.”
Reading during the summer is encouraged by educators to reinforce the skills students developed during the school year.
“If you have a struggling or reluctant reader, sometimes the only way to motivate them is to provide incentives,” said Susan Jelic, Supervisor of Youth Services. “Not only do we provide prizes to encourage reading, but we also have free, fun activities planned throughout the summer to inspire children, teens, and adults. This year, participants have the added flexibility of setting their own reading goal.”
Patrons can join the Summer Reading Challenge by visiting any Dearborn Public Library or online at dearbornlibrary.beanstack.org on or after June 20.
Henry Ford Centennial Library will host a kickoff event at 5 p.m. June 20 featuring Beverly Meyer, the Music Lady. The public is invited.
