Summer Reading 2024: Read, Renew, Repeat!

Welcome to Summer Reading 2024 with Chillicothe Public Library! The program runs June 9 – July 20, and it’s for all ages, birth through adult. Read a little bit each day to earn fun prizes!

Or, stop by the library to sign up in person.

How it works:

  • Read at least 90 minutes a week for all six weeks to complete the challenge. (That’s just 15 minutes a day for 6 days each week!)
  • After completing each week, check in at the library with your log to claim a small prize.
  • Last date to check in and be eligible for prizes is July 25.
