Carmel Clay Public Library

May 22-Aug. 4

The Summer Reading  Challenge at the Carmel Clay Public Library “encourages lifelong learning and the continued development of 21st century skills for our entire community.” The program is open to everyone – infants to adults and does not  just involve reading, although that is one option. Activity options include writing an online book review, visiting a park, doing a science activity, completing a crossword puzzle, registering for a library card, or attending a library event…just to name a few. Complete any of the Summer Challenge activities to earn points that can be redeemed for prizes.
