Summer Reading 2023: All Together Now

Summer Reading is almost here! Our theme this year is All Together Now. This year’s program focuses on DIVERSITY:  how people from all over the world can be both different from us and the same as us at the same time!

The beautiful thing about our community is that we come from all walks of life. Libraries are truly for everyone and we are excited to embrace this year’s theme.

We will have 8 different activities set up around the library and participants can do them at their own pace over a month’s time. You can also complete some of the activities at home, if you wish. A game board will be provided at registration. A reading log is included to keep track of the number of minutes you read this summer. Registrants that complete the activities will receive a prize at the end of the program.

We will also be running our first-ever Lima Public Library Film Festival in celebration of this year’s theme! Hop on over to all parts of the world with family-friendly films.
