Oceans of Possibilities
It's time for the Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading Challenge. Explore new depths, visit uncharted locals, and discover hidden treasures by getting hooked on a book! We also have sea theme crafts and programs for children, teens, and adults planned throughout the summer. Sign up begins Monday, June 6, at 10:00 AM to set sail on an adventure-filled summer.
Choose to participate with the traditional paper log, download the Beanstack tracker, or log in online at horicon.beanstack.org. Online preregistration is available now. We have reading challenges available for all ages, 1 to 99. Track your reading on the paper log or in the app. As you complete each hour up to 10 hours, you'll earn a reading badge, a book from our lonely books collection, for the younger set a trip to the treasure chest, and a ticket towards weekly and grand prizes. Of course, we're not picky about what you choose to read or listen to. So whether it's the daily newspaper or an epic fantasy series, it's still reading. Prize redemption begins Monday, June 13. Win extra grand prize tickets by completing the activity and writing badges. The challenge will run for ten weeks, culminating in an Under the Sea party for the hearty maties who finished the challenge, where we'll announce the grand prize winners.

You'll find us each Wednesday at Music at the Market. We love partnering with the Horicon Phoenix Program, who makes it possible. Visit our tent between 6 and 7:30 PM each week (barring inclement weather) for a youth-level project while the adults enjoy the featured musical artist.
The number of projects is limited and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
