ImagineIF Libraries kicks off its Summer Experience 2022 for children and teens next week.

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

Children and teens can now pick up a game board at any ImagineIF location that offers reading and learning challenges, as well as a list of summer programming at the library. Participants can bring back their completed game board by Aug. 20 to receive a prize. Youth and families may sign up at any ImagineIF location: Bigfork, Columbia Falls, Kalispell or Marion.
