Dayton Metro Library is excited to host our annual summer reading program. This year, it’s a different kind of Summer Challenge with lots of new activities that count towards goals. You can check out digital and physical books (of course!), watch wonderful online performances, participate in virtual summer camps, complete electronic activities, or enjoy any school, parent or community organization’s recommended enrichment activities. All your fun this summer adds up, helping you earn imagination-themed prizes!
