Summer Reading Program Celebrates Milestone State Birthday
Children, teens and families are invited to experience the gift of reading and be a part of Indiana’s 200th birthday celebration during The Indianapolis Public Library’s 2016 Summer Reading Book Bash program, beginning June 6 and continuing through July 30 at all Indy public libraries.
Headlining the festivities will be the furry fan favorite of readers worldwide, Garfield the Cat, created by Muncie, Indiana-based cartoonist Jim Davis. Garfield will inspire young readers to earn points for their reading activity that can be exchanged for a variety of free prizes donated by community sponsors, many of which spotlight places, experiences and community attractions throughout the state.
Among the prizes will be tickets to an Indianapolis Indians game, including Library Night at Victory Field at 7 p.m. on July 18.
