Blast into summer with free Dayton Metro Library ‘Pop-Up’ activities

The Dayton Metro Library is hosting free Pop-Up programs at library branches all summer long.

The outdoor programing is geared toward children, teens and families with dance parties, family yoga and more.

“Pop-Up Programs are a fun way to offer in-person programs outside,” Julie Buchanan, Dayton Metro Library programming manager, said in a release. “Kids are ready to be with other kids, and our librarians are eager to interact with their young patrons again.”

Pop-up activities also include story times, STEM experiments, craft activities, book talks and guided meditation. The programs vary by location and attendance can be counted in the library’s Summer Challenge.

A schedule of events can be found online or at branch locations.

Walk-ins are welcome if space permits, but advance registration is recommended. Programs will be rescheduled for inclement weather.
