Sage Library in Bay City is holding its Summer Reading Program kickoff party Thursday.

From 4:30 – 6:00 p.m., there will be a variety of games, crafts, prizes, a bounce house and snacks for the whole family. The Summer Reading Program theme this year is Adventure Begins at Your Library. Attendees can sign up for the program for a chance to win prizes at the end of the summer, just by reading books. Read for eight hours between now and August 3 and you can be entered into the prize drawings.

The event will be held in Pershing Park, adjacent to the library, at 100 West Midland Street. Attendance is free and open to the public. For more information about the kickoff party or the Summer Reading Program, visit baycountylibrary.org.
