Summer Reading Program 2024

Summer Reading is a fun and exciting way to keep children's reading skills sharp during the summer! This summer we have an exciting variety of STEAM-filled programs! STEAM programs include Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math concepts. We are here to show you that learning can be fun. STEAM programs are sponsored in whole or part by a Libraries Accelerating Learning grant from the Ohio Department of Education and Workforce. 

Earn prizes all summer by reading! With each reading goal you meet, receive a small prize and enter to win one of our grand prizes (Kings Island tickets, $50 gift cards to Walmart, Amazon, the Cincinnati Zoo, and more). Track your reading with a paper reading log, or track your reading and enter to win prizes with the Beanstack App.
