Each week the library will also have prize drawings, take & makes, adult trivia, storytimes, and activity books to follow along with page-turner weekly adventures from home. The library will offer access to Page Turner Adventures as part of its summer reading program. The program content can be accessed from home through the library’s website, Each adventure is geared towards the summer reading theme, “All Together Now,” and includes a mix of live-action and animated comedy shows, crafts, e-books, audio books, and downloadable activity books to bring stories to life as children explore original tales of friendship, cooperation, kindness, and empathy. Families are also invited to visit the website for in-person summer reading dates and times to join in on all the fun that will provide a summer full of reading. Registration for “All Together Now” will begin Tuesday, May 30th, and will continue until June 3rd at each branch of the McDonald County Library.
