The summer experience kicks off at ImagineIF Libraries

ImagineIF Libraries is launching its Summer Experience 2022 for children and teens next week.

Summer Experience is a free program that encourages young people to love books, explore science and discover new adventures throughout the summer. This year’s events are all about learning through exploration, with an emphasis on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) activities.

Kids and teens can now pick up a game board at any ImagineIF location featuring reading and learning challenges, as well as a list of summer programs at the library. Participants can return their completed game board before August 20 to receive a prize. Youth and families can register at any ImagineIF location: Bigfork, Columbia Falls, Kalispell, or Marion.
