A local library’s summer reading program will feature a water-themed challenge.

Each summer, the Brighton District Library offers free programs, prizes, and incentives through its Summer Reading Challenge.

The all-ages reading challenge encourages reading and enjoyment of reading for budding readers, bookworms, and adults.

This year’s water-themed challenge is “Oceans of Possibilities,” which runs June 12th through August 6th. Officials say participants can simply sign up and dive into eight-weeks of interactive activities, engaging programs, prizes, and reading fun for the whole family.

The library’s kickoff event begins with Summerfest on Sunday, June 12th from 1-3pm.

The outdoor family event will feature a juggler, comedian, and stilt walker Jason Kollum, the Jumpin’ ALL STARS jump rope team, Chamberlin Petting Farm, giant bubble making with the Bubble Man, a Story Walk, and ice cream.

Registration for the “Oceans of Possibilities” Summer Reading Challenge begins June 12th and patrons can pick up free material at the Brighton Library to get started.

Details are available in the attached release and flyer.
