Thursdays. Registration is required and space is limited.

The staff at public libraries gear free summer programs to children so they will encounter books in the most non-threatening way possible. Programs for the summer will range from "Nature's Architects" presented by Forest Park Nature Center to a series of hands-on "In the Style of" art workshops.

ZANESVILLE, Ohio- The Muskingum County Library System has launched their Summer Experience Program for 2017.

Listening to audiobooks, reading to others, being read to, and reading books on a school reading list all count for reading minutes.

People ages 13-18 can sign up online for the Teen Summer Reading Challenge. Prizes, including the legendary Mystery Prize, will be raffled off at the annual finale party on August 3.

This year's Summer Reading theme is "Build a Better World", and kids will find plenty of ways to do their part, from reading at home and at the beach, to attending fascinating library programs about science, nature and more to help keep their minds sharp all summer long.

The benefits of reading in adulthood are sometimes overlooked, according to Adult Services Manager Jessica Parij.

The Summer Reading Program will conclude with a celebratory Ice Cream Social on July 28 at 2 p.m. Each child who completes the fourth level of the summer reading program will earn a ticket for their family.
