Join a ranger from the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to learn about the critters of Ohio. Traveling through the area, you may catch a glimpse of a white tailed deer, a lodge constructed by hard-working beavers, or a great blue heron soaring through the valley. Through the use of American Indian stories, pelts, puppets, and skulls we’ll explore the animals who call Northeastern Ohio home.

SUMMER READING PROGRAM
READ AT YOUR OWN PACE JUNE 9 – AUGUST 30, 2014
How the program works:
1. Fill out a registration card at your library and receive your free goodie bag.
2. Read 30 minutes today. Check off the data on your reading log. You will win a prize, or be entered into a prize drawing, at each of these reading milestones: 10 days, 26 days, 40 days, 50 days, 60 days, 70 days, and 80+ days.
3. Choose to be active also! Run/walk 26 miles (52,000 pedometer steps), record your accomplishment on your exercise log, AND read 26 days and you will receive a Mind, Body & Soul T-shirt. Fill out the entry form at the bottom of your exercise log to also be entered into our end-of-summer Grand Prize Drawing to be held at the Library’s 140th Anniversary Celebration on September 13. (If a pedometer cannot record your movement activity, log 1/2 hour of activity as one mile.)
