Summer Challenge for Adults – June 6 – July 30th
This summer we invite adults to participate in our Summer Challenge. Instead of a traditional reading program you will earn prize drawing tickets by reading or completing activities (or both!).
How does it work?
Pick up a summer challenge log at the help desk. Keep track of the books you read or the activities you do. Each book read will earn one entry ticket for our prize drawing. Three activities completed will equal one entry ticket for our prize drawing. You can read, just do the activities or do both for even more entries.
Fill out tickets, cut out the slips and put them in the prize drawing boxes at Central or East. Branch. You can earn a total of 30 prize drawing tickets (15 tickets for reading books and 15 tickets for completing activities). Once you’ve filled out and turned in all the tickets in this booklet you’ve finished the Summer Challenge!
What counts as an activity?
We encourage you to try something new this summer but activities can be anything from a road trip to taking your dog for a walk. Choose from activities listed in the summer challenge log.
