Find Your Happy with Toledo Lucas County Public Library and Summer Read

The Toledo Lucas County Public Library is encouraging fun and reading this summer with outdoors games, free materials and activities, and the return of Summer Read.

Summer Read participants can log their reading accomplishments to redeem rewards and for a chance to win prizes. To participate, readers need to read or listen to a book 30 days between June 1 and Aug. 7 and track their progress on a reading folder, available at all Library locations and as a downloadable PDF on the Library website, or digitally using the Beanstack Tracker app.

Thanks to the generosity of The Library Legacy Foundation, readers can redeem a variety of rewards, including a Summer Reader yard sign, a free book for kids and teens, and a Find Your Happy mug for adults (while supplies last). Everyone who completes the program and enters virtual tickets in the random drawing is eligible for Summer Read grand prizes.

Summer Read is free and open to all ages and is sponsored by Buckeye Broadband, The Blade, Friends of the Library, Directions Credit Union, and The Library Legacy Foundation.

In addition to Summer Read, the Library is also providing free Activities to Go kits, learning packs, reading toolkits, and outdoor games for onsite use at Library locations. Visitors are also invited to enjoy the Library’s various community gardens, I Spy windows, sidewalk activity courses, and StoryWalk® at 19 locations.

Don’t forget, TARTA is free this summer with many Library stops!
