London Library Summer Reading Program starts June 3

(Posted May 23, 2024)

London Public Library  announces the launch of its 2024 Summer Reading Program entitled “Adventure Begins at Your Library.”

Designed to ignite the spirit of exploration and discovery, the Summer Reading Program encourages participants of all ages to dive into the captivating realms of books, unlocking new worlds and possibilities. Whether you are a seasoned bookworm or just dipping your toes into the literary waters, there is something for everyone at the library.

The program runs June 3-July 26. Participants can immerse themselves in books, audiobooks, wonderbooks, and e-books, earning rewards and prizes along the way. Registration begins June 3. Participants can sign up online through Beanstack, the Beanstack app, or by visiting the library in person. Age groups are split into children, teens, and adults, with each group being offered its own array of grand prizes and events.

Children’s activities include storytimes like Picnic Storytime and Butterfly Storytime, imaginative crafts like Paint Party and MESS-tival, and fun-filled events like Trick Roping and the Matt Jergen’s Comedy Juggling Show.

Teens can enjoy life-sized classic games like Hungry, Hungry Hippos, Mario Kart, and Clue, take part in after-hours competitions like laser tag and an escape room, and test their creativity in a teen writer’s workshop.

Adults can explore new horizons with discussions at monthly book club meetings, partake in beginner yoga classes, and crack the code in a challenging escape room.

The library also has planned several events for families and people of all ages, including a show-and-tell by the Columbus Zoo and its ambassador animals, several competitive Family Nerd Nights, and the ever-popular summer concert series featuring a lineup of family-friendly bands and artists.

The library is seeking volunteers to assist with various programs throughout the summer. Visit or call (740) 852-9543 for a full schedule of events, to sign up to help at events, or to register for any of the limited-space programs.

The library is located at 20 E. First St., London.
