Story Time Online: Reading Takes You Places


OCPL Summer Reading Program 2020 - Reading Takes You PlacesWhere do you want to go this summer? Reading takes you everywhere!

Join our 2020 Summer Reading Challenge - "Reading Takes You Places" - and read, explore, and discover amazing places both near and far. Each minute you read between now and August 15th will count as one mile. We'll be keeping track of countries visited in books and miles (in minutes) read through an online platform. Want to participate? It's easy!

Starting June 15, 2020 sign up online at ohiocountylibrary.readsquared.com or download the READsquared app at the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. Collect points for reading and completing activities. Log points to earn cool prizes!

We will also be posting Toddler Time, Story Time, and Special Kids Programs each week. Additional Story Times will be posted on our regular Story Time Online page
