Area Summer Reading Programs Galore
Summer is an ideal time for reading, whether relaxing at home, near the water or on vacation, and as a great alternative to TV and other digital screens for children. Our public libraries offer many opportunities via summer reading programs to savor printed words, from classics to current literature.
The Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library (IMCPL), encompassing a main location and 22 branches, is re-creating the feel of the ‘60s and bringing it back to the present day with a feel-good way to make a difference through the Book-Aid campaign through July 27. Those that register receive a point card and will get points for each book checked out, read and returned during that time, plus earn bonus points. Points can be redeemed for prizes.
