Summer is just around the corner, and that means that things are really heating up at Deschutes Public Library. Starting June 1, readers and adventurers of all ages can sign up for the Summer with the Library program, and open the door to a whole season of possibilities!

This summer participation is even easier with two ways to join the fun. Once the program begins, participants can sign up online using Beanstack, the library’s virtual summer reading and activity tracking app, or go old school and sign up at their local library.

Upon registration, children and teens will receive a free book and adults will get a collectable bookmark (while supplies last). Participants of all ages will have from June 1 through August 31 to read, explore and even enter for a chance to win prizes. Prizes will be drawn after August 31.

The fun doesn’t end there, however! All Deschutes Public Library locations offer DIY activities and craft kits throughout the summer to inspire creativity and learning. The library also offers ongoing virtual programs, including weekly story times and activities for kids, teens and adults. Links to program recordings and information on upcoming events can be found here: deschuteslibrary.org/calendar/eventguide.

Can’t get to a library? Connect with Library on the Go! Check the library website for where and when we’ll be near you: www.deschuteslibrary.org/summer.

With all this excitement, June 1 can’t come soon enough. Go to deschuteslibrary.org/summer for more information, updates and a countdown to the second the fun begins.

For general information about the library, including hours and locations, please visit our website at deschuteslibrary.org/about/libraries/.

Wherever you are, and whatever your interests, we look forward to having you create, read and explore with us this summer!
