Elkhart Public Library

Go Exploring

Find your Stories in the Stars this summer and win prizes, including a Chicago experience with hotel and spending cash


(Summer reading is finished for this year, but we’ll be back with big ideas and fresh prizes starting in May 2020!)

Let’s face it. You want to take off this summer.

What if you could explore new worlds – or even the great beyond? Summer is the time to dream big, without the worries of homework and buzzing alarm clocks. 

Elkhart Public Library is here to help you find your Stories in the Stars and make you a winner this summer. How about a great weekend in Chicago, with hotel, great tickets to attractions, and $200 spending cash? How about hoverboards and telescopes and fair tickets with ride wristbands and … well, we have lots of prizes to giveaway.

And that’s just the beginning.

A visit by an astronaut. A party in the moonlight at Wellfield Botanic Gardens. Bubbly science demonstrations. Menacing raptors. Space camps.

They’re all on the schedule for an exciting summer at Elkhart Public Library. Find your favorites and share them around on Facebook.

Welch Packaging Group works in partnership with the library to present the summer activities. Other sponsors include the Community Foundation of Elkhart County, Elkhart Education Foundation, the Friends of Elkhart Public Library, U-93 Today’s Best Music, the Elkhart County 4-H Fair, and Elkhart and Concord schools.

With Stories in the Stars and outer space as our theme, kids will be encouraged every day to know their education and dreams have no limit.
