[ARCHIVED] East Lansing Public Library Kicks Off Summer Reading Challenge

EAST LANSING, Mich. — The East Lansing Public Library’s (ELPL) “A Universe of Stories” 2019 Summer Reading Challenge will kick-off on Monday, June 17 and run through Saturday, Aug. 10.

The summer reading challenge is for all ages, offering something for everyone. Each participant will log their reading time, complete an activity or complete a challenge to win prizes, such as event tickets, food certificates and more.
