Summer Reading Program Kicks Off June 13 in Bay County
The "Oceans of Possibilities" Summer Reading Program at the Bay County Library System runs June 13-August 13. BCLS has a fun, FREE, action-packed summer filled with workshops, prizes, giveaways, performances, and parties to keep all ages entertained. Of course, reading takes center stage. Sign up and participate with a paper log or track your reading on the library's Beanstack website or Beanstack Tracker app. For every eight hours of reading, you will be entered into a gift card drawing. Be sure to pick up your free reusable book back at any branch library when you register, provided by the Friends of the Bay County Libraries!
