MEIGS COUNTY — The Meigs County District Public Library kicked off its Summer Reading Program “Oceans of Possibilities” earlier this month at the Library’s Racine branch. Some activities have already taken place, but there are plenty of additional opportunities to participate, including Barker Farms Petting Zoo, Discovery Lab Jr., Columbus Zoo, Summer Reading Pool Party, and ongoing weekly programs Wiggle Giggle Read and Story Time. Bagged lunches will be served at each children’s program throughout the summer.

Adults are also invited to explore programs that encourage current interests, and offer opportunities to learn new ones. Monthly book clubs and acoustic jam sessions are open to all, and Needle Network invites everyone regardless of their experience level to attend.

Meigs County District Public Library is a library system in southeast Ohio. There are four library branches: Middleport, Pomeroy, Racine and Eastern.
