Summer Experience



Summer Experience Launches June 8th- August 14th

Explore, create, and read all summer long!

Summer Experience encourages people of all ages to enjoy books, explore science, and discover new adventures all summer long. There is no cost to participate. This year’s events are all about learning through play, connecting with our communities, and exploring new hobbies, with an emphasis on STEAM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities in the children and teen programs.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and following the guidance of local public health experts, ImagineIF Libraries will not host in-person Summer Experience programs and workshops this year. Instead, participants can explore, learn, and create in their own homes, inspired by thought-provoking and exciting prompts. Youth and adults alike can complete activities, earn badges, and win prizes while exploring their imaginations and the world around them using Beanstack, reading challenge software, with mobile and desktop friendly versions.
