Readers of all ages are encouraged to keep reading during the summer months and dive into the ocean depths as The Findlay-Hancock County Public Library presents “Oceans of Possibilities” during their summer library program. Activities include ocean-related crafts, art projects, games and puzzles, science and engineering experiments, and of course, reading. Partners for exciting, new programs include The Toledo Zoo and Aquarium, the Armstrong Air & Space Museum, the Lima Symphony Orchestra, and more.
SummerREAD registration is open to all ages, infant through adult. The library is providing a free gift book to all early literacy, children’s and teen registrants. This summer, the library is again using an online platform, READsquared, for participants to keep track of their reading progress. Participants can earn great prizes by logging reading, writing a review, or completing fun activities. There will be weekly drawings for great prizes. If you prefer not to track your reading online, there will be paper forms available at the library to log reading progress.
Families are invited to join in reading together, and to attend programs such as Family Storytime at the Library, an exclusive library-only virtual trip to the Toledo Zoo and Aquarium, Symphony Storytime, Family Book Bingo, and Family Night: Treasure Hunt at the Oakwoods Nature Preserve. Teen activities include Teen Book Bingo, Sidewalk Chalk Art, a Mazza Museum Tour and Career Chat, and a Teen Game Night. Adults can enjoy book discussions, learning to cook with cast iron pans, a fishing school program with the Ohio Division of Wildlife, and many more informative programs.

Brittany Lutes, Youth Services Manager at the Findlay-Hancock County Public Library said of the SummerREAD program, “The library is thrilled to offer a summer lineup packed with activities and fun for all ages. It is especially critical that young learners engage in learning all year round and we prioritize meeting that challenge in a way that is fun and exciting for them. There is a little something for everyone in summer programming at the library and we can't wait to see you here!"
