September 12, so that will be the last day for families to log
kids' reading time online with ReadSquared. To log their
reading, download the ReadSquared app from the App Store and
find our library by typing in "Youngstown Free Library." Your
kids' reading can earn them prizes and count towards our grand
total, which will be published in the fall newsletter of the
Friends of the Library.
Prizes for the Summer Reading Challenge will be available for pick-up at the Front Desk of the Library until the end of September.

• All staff members are screened daily to ensure that everyone is feeling well.
• All staff and patrons are wearing appropriate PPE for each situation.
• We are cleaning all public areas on a regular basis.
• We are cleaning and disinfecting all work areas at the end of every shift.
Please feel free to review our full Safety Plan.
