|ALL AGES SUMMER READING 2020Starting June 1, patrons of all ages are invited to participate in the Dearborn Public Library’s summer reading program Imagine Your Story. Babies, children, teens, and adults can earn prizes by logging reading times and completing activity challenges. Visit https://dearbornlibrary.beanstack.org to get started. This year’s program will run through August 22. With current limited library services, prize winners will be contacted with instructions on how to pick up their prizes at a later date. Dearborn/Dearborn Heights residents who need library cards can apply for a temporary library card while the buildings remain closed in order to gain access to the library’s digital materials and databases. For more information on the library, please continue to check our website and follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter).|

Book club participants will be able to interact with each other by viewing and responding to video posts. All posts must be approved by the host librarian before they can be viewed by the rest of the book club members. Time spent reading for the book club will count for the summer reading program. To receive the Flipgrid password, families should fill out the registration form. COVID-19: Save Your Story ProjectThe COVID-19 crisis has affected every person in our community. As we live through this historical moment, we hope to save and preserve our community’s personal stories, experiences, and artwork related to Coronavirus, social distancing, and quarantine. We invite you to share your story with us. There is a separate submission form for Youth (Ages 5-13), Teen (Grades 7-12), and Adult (Ages 18+). Stories and artwork may also be added to the Library’s digital collection or displays. Entries can be submitted anonymously by putting the word “Anonymous” in the name field on the submission form. Submissions will be accepted through October 1, 2020. At the end of this project, we will submit all entries to the Library of Michigan and the Dearborn Historical Museum to provide future historians, researchers, and students with information and data on life in Michigan communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
