Summer Reading Program For Teens
June 13 - August 6Teens ages 13 to 17 are welcome to participate in the Oceans of Possibilities summer reading program, which begins Monday, June 13 and ends Saturday, August 6. Every book read will give you extra chances at winning one of our grand prize giveaways of gift cards to restaurants in Imlay City.
July 11 - 16Whether you're searching for treasure, or simply can't find your way home, these map-making kits are sure to help you in your journey.
Learn about the history of map-making, and look through examples of old maps and the processes used to create them. Then take the knowledge learned from this kit and create your own map, whether it be of your home, your city, your favorite fantasy novel's setting, or even your favorite library (Ruth Hughes of course).
This kit is best suited for ages 12 and up and can be picked up any time during the week of July 11-16.
Message in a Bottle
July 20, 4:00 PMKeep scalawag pirates (or younger siblings) at bay by learning a special code to create messages. Then, store them in a beach-themed glass bottle for safe-keeping. This program will be held in person on Wednesday, July 20 at 4:00 PM.
Registration for this event will begin on Wednesday, July 6, so make sure you reserve your space before the pirates crack your code!
