Flashlight Frenzy

It’s time to read by flashlight with your kids! We're partnering with Metroparks Toledo to give away free flashlights (while supplies last) to families who read together at any Library location this October.

Enter to WIN a night of camping at the Metroparks by uploading a horizontal photo of yourself/your family reading by flashlight and sharing why you love the Library in the form below. One winner will be chosen (and alerted via email) each week in October.

Flashlight Frenzy Programs:

#FlashlightFrenzy - (M) Oct. 15 | 7 p.m. | Sylvania
Flashlights & Campfires - (T) Oct. 16 | 5 p.m. | South
Flashlights and Fireflies - (T) Oct. 23 | 6 p.m. | Sanger
#FlashlightFrenzy - (T) Oct. 30 | 6  p.m. | West Toledo

You can also join us at any of our locations for drop-in Flashlight Frenzy programs (during Library hours), Oct. 1 - 31!
