The Findlay-Hancock County Public Library will host SummerREAD for participants of all ages starting from 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. June 1 at the Findlay library.
This year’s program will revolve around the sports theme “On your mark, get set, read” and will run through July 30.
Throughout the summer, events will include programs and prizes for children, teens and adults.
The library will partner with the Literacy Coalition of Hancock County, offering literacy activities including registration for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.
International gold medalist juggler Matt Jergens will perform at 6:30 p.m. under the skylight in the Adult Services Department, and Braden the Magician will perform at 7 p.m. June 22 at the library.
Classes in the park are for homeschooled families. This 10 day series will be held on the first Wednesday of each month from September to June to explore different science based curriculum programs such as earth, space, physical and life science. Each class will cover some of Ohio’s teaching standards in a fun and exciting way. Most of the classes will be held at Oakwoods Nature Preserve, but we will visit some of the other parks in Hancock County. We will follow Findlay City Schools for weather delays and cancellations.
9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., ages 5-8
11 a.m. to noon, ages 9-13
Scheduled for the first Thursday of each month visit the Hancock Historical Museum for a variety of informative and educational presentations on a wide range of topics relevant to Findlay and Hancock County Ohio.
