A “touch-a-truck” event is being planned this month at the Upper Shores branch of the Ocean County Library in Lavallette to help kick off a summer reading program sponsored by the county library system.

The Summer Reading Kickoff event is scheduled for Friday, June 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the library, located at 112 Jersey City Avenue in Lavallette.

The event will feature a “Touch-a-Truck” attraction where children can explore fire, police and other emergency vehicles and interact with officers and other first responders. The library will also host the making of children’s crafts, a chance to win prizes, and the opportunity to sign up for the library’s fun summer reading program.

The Kickoff’s first hour will be siren-free and horn-free. There will be crafting for children and chances for all attendees to win great prizes, the library system said in an announcement.

The library system is going all-out for its summer reading program in 2024. Adults, teens and children can win prizes during the Library’s Summer Reading competition through Sept. 13. Participants can track their progress through OCL’s Beanstack portal, earn digital “badges” for their accomplishments, find out about branch events, and even write reviews.

No registration is required for the Touch-a-Truck event. A registration form is available, however, to help library staff coordinate how many participants are planning to attend.
