2 ] www.tusclibrary.org Director’s Notes Whether you and your fami ly are vacationing or staycationing this summer, the County Library System invites you to explore an “Ocean of Possibilities” with our Summer Reading Program. Take the time to learn something new, to lose yourself in a good book, to listen to music and audiobooks while you work, or to experiment with a new hobby. A quick look through this brochure will have you marking your calendar with the many free offerings that you or your family will want to attend across our Library System this summer. In addition to fun programs and opportunities to win prizes, participation in the library’s Summer Reading Challenge has valuable benefits. Early learners build reading and language skills. School-aged kids continue to use their reading, math, and science skills as they participate in library programs. Teens are motivated to read and learn as they explore interests with friends. Adults are encouraged to explore the joy of reading, as well as personal interests. Participation in our Summer Reading Program is free and easy. Sign up for our Summer Reading Challenge by downloading the Beanstack Tracker app on your smartphone or tablet or by visiting tusclibrary. beanstack.org.
