Jun 16, 2021 | Entertainment | 0 comments

Ida Rupp Library has been partnering with the Port Clinton Chamber of Commerce’s Meals on Madison (M.O.M.) Area this summer to bring great summer reading events to Port Clinton.

“Let’s enjoy the great summer weather by gathering at M.O.M.,” said Ida Rupp official Jan Beck. “Watch and listen to performers, make crafts together, and discuss some terrific books. We invite all our community members to join us at any of these events.”

The Summer Library Challenge runs through July 31. In addition, there will be displays, crafts and more at other Ida Rupp branches, including Put-in-Bay and Marblehead. In case of rain, join us in library community room.

The theme for this year’s summer reading is Tails and Tales. Kids can participate, track their activity, and be eligible for our grand prize drawing.
