The Dearborn Public Library will launch its annual Summer Reading Challenge on June 1, 2024. The Summer Reading Challenge is designed to engage and inspire younger patrons with programs and activities to inspire reading over the summer months. This year’s challenge, “Adventure Begins at Your Library,” runs through Aug. 10 and will feature incentives and activities for adults and kids alike.

“This program is a great way to motivate readers and provides incentives and prizes to encourage reading and have free, fun activities planned throughout the summer to inspire readers of all ages,” said Susan Jelic, Supervisor of Youth Services.

The Henry Ford Centennial Library, 16301 Michigan Ave, will host a kickoff event on Monday, June 10 at 11 a.m. in the Auditorium with a special production performed by the Bright Start Children’s Theater. The event is open to the public. Other exciting activities include:

- Summer Camp Day at the Library, Saturday, June 29 at 2 p.m.
- Exploring AI at Esper Library. Three sessions will introduce the world of AI to all ages during open library hours on June 3, July 1, and Aug. 5, 2024.
- All Abilities Drama Workshop is on Wednesday, July 22, at 2 p.m. OpenSpot Theater will present a one-hour workshop with singing, dancing, acting, and sign language interpretations.
