Developing summer programming a challenge for libraries

Summer reading programs at area public libraries will have a different feel this year. Users of libraries in Door County, Algoma, and Kewaunee are limited to curbside pick-up for their materials while relying on virtual programming to stay connected. Those restrictions only make it harder for libraries to connect with teens in particular that are busy with summer jobs, college preparation, and volunteer opportunities. Braelyn Dempsey from the Algoma Public Library says they have been embracing those challenges and using technology to their advantage.

Dempsey hopes that programs like its anonymous playlist swap, online game parties, and activity pack pick-ups can keep families connected with the library this summer.
