Let's Come All Together Now This Summer!
We are super excited to continue our Summer Reading Challenge for all ages this year. Participants will continue to log all reading through our ReadSquared app for prizes. There will be all kinds of fun programs and activities for this year's theme: All Together Now.
We are also eager to shake things up this summer:
- Every child and teen will be able to set their own reading goal for the challenge. Prizes will be awarded according to percentage of completion toward their goal. Once you've attained your reading goal, you'll receive your certificate and be entered into our grand prize drawings at the finale.
- We've adjusted the prize system for our Children's Program by creating two tracks: one for little kids (4 and under) & another for big kids (5-10). Little kids will read to earn prizes from our treasure chest, while big kids will read to attain leveled prizes.
- In addition, we've added READ & BEAD: Summer Reading on a Necklace (Ages 5 & up). This creative and fun activity gives kids the opportunity to build their own unique memento. For each reading level attained a child will earn beads of varying colors, shapes and designs to add to their necklace. There will also be specialty beads offered for attending programs.
- Older teens (16-18) may choose to participate in the Adult Program this year. Teens that opt to register for the Adult Program will fall into the adult prize system but WILL NOT BE EXCLUDED from teen programing. Please note that only YA and adult titles will be accepted in the adult challenge.
- Missions Badge for Adult Program - read books set in, about or has a character from select countries and get a passport stamped. For each country stamped the reader will get a treat from that country. Once passports have been stamped with 5 countries, the reader will be entered into our Missions prize drawing.
