Ross County Board of DD announces meeting change
Adena has hosted the Summer Activity Challenge with Chillicothe-Ross County Public Library since 2013, and the program continues to grow throughout the region. The collaboration was also featured in American Library Association literature, as a model for incorporating better health with organized children’s reading programs. The Challenge was adopted by Pike County libraries about five years ago. This year, Highland and Fayette County libraries are also joining. “Getting lost in a good book can be one of life’s simple joys,” said Adena’s Director of Community Health & Development Kim Jones. “Summer Reading programs are an opportunity for children and adults to relax, learn and develop good habits. Adena is proud to participate each summer by offering the Adena Healthy Kids Summer Activity Challenge, which encourages readers to take a break to do simple activities to get them moving and closer to building healthy habits.”
The Challenge includes activities such as: Whether you are a student, a family member reading to a baby or toddler, or an adult reader, the enjoyment of books can enhance lifelong learning, and provide meaningful and enjoyable experiences for everyone. Those participating in summer reading programs can also take part in the 2021 Adena Healthy Kids Summer Activity Challenge for a chance to win prizes, including a new bicycle.
