Summer Experiences Continues in August

Teens doing activity at library

Summer Experience encourages children and teens to enjoy books, explore science, and discover new adventures all summer long.

Starting June 13th, children and teens can pick up a gameboard at any ImagineIF location that offers reading and learning challenges, as well as a list of summer programming at the library. Participants can bring back their completed gameboard by August 20th to receive a prize.
