Toledo Public Library has unveiled its new Summer Reading Program, specially tailored to offer readers of all ages the chance to expand their horizons in an age of social distancing.
For many years, the program has encouraged children, teens and adults alike to read for pleasure over the summer months. Traditionally, this has included tracking reading to earn prizes; and weekly shows from storytellers, puppet shows, educators and a host of other performers. This year, COVID-19 has presented a challenge for this programming, but the library staff has been hard at work devising innovative and creative new ideas for Summer Reading Club 2020.
The all-ages program, themed “Imagine Your Story,” offers elements including The Great Gran Plan Tic-Tac-Toe, The Singing Rock Book Club, podcast reviews, creative writing opportunities and more.
The Great Gran Plan will also be featured in a story trail along Main Street, while The Singing Rock graphic novel stories will be featured in the library windows for additional participation.
To register, go to www.cityoftoledo.org/library. Registration materials will also be available at school meal delivery bus stops, and outside of JC Thriftway on select days. If none of these options work, give the library a call and staff can get you signed up over the phone.
For more information, call 541-336-3132 between 10 am and 2 pm Monday to Friday or email email@example.com.
