Summer Library Challenge 2019

Readers of all ages will explore all things “Out of This World” as part of our Summer Library Challenge 2019, “A Universe of Stories”  beginning Monday, June 3 – Friday, August 2. The 2019 Summer Library Challenge is designed to encourage children, teens, and adults to read independently and participate in literacy-based activities. Free activities and events are offered at the library throughout the summer to engage all ages and foster the love of reading. 

Children and their families may begin registering for the reading challenge on Monday, June 3, 2019. Registration will continue through the month of June; however, children and teens who register during the week of June 3-8 will receive a free book, provided by the Miami County Foundation, while supplies last. At registration, each family will receive a booklet of activities and scheduled events, which will occur throughout the 9-week challenge. Register for the summer reading program at the Troy-Miami County Public Library in Troy, on the Bookmobile, or at the Oakes Beitman Memorial Library in Pleasant Hill. 

“A Universe of Stories!” is open to participants of all ages from birth to 99+! We have activities planned for all ages during the summer including The Curiosity Dome, Astronaut Training Camp, craft days, Newport Aquarium WAVE on Wheels – Shark Cart, outdoor movies at Treasure Island in collaboration with The City of Troy, our Touch-a-Truck event, Brukner Nature Center visits, Miami County Park District programs, a pool party and so much more!
