2020 Summer Reading Adventure!

Registration is open now for all ages; take the opportunity to sign up for a Beanstack account, or to contact a librarian if you need help remembering your username and resetting your password. 

For Pre-K and school age kids, start logging reading time to earn badges and weekly prizes. Read for one hour to earn a badge; earning a badge means you can come in to collect the prize for that week. Keep reading to collect all eight weekly prizes! Once you complete 4 badges, you earn the Tier 1 prize, your choice of a book. When you finish the 8th badge, you earn the Tier 2 prize, a drawstring backpack!

For teens, read for two hours to earn a badge; each badge gets you a weekly prize. Keep reading to collect all eight weekly prizes! Once you complete 4 badges, you earn the Tier 1 prize, your choice of a book. When you finish the 8th badge, you earn the Tier 2 prize, a drawstring backpack! Plus, if you finish Tier 1 by July 16, you’ll automatically be entered for our gift basket drawing with food and coffee! The drawing will be held on July 17, one prize per branch. Finally, if you finish all 8 badges by August 7, you’ll be entered in our cash drawing to be held on August 8.

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Adult Summer Reading Adventure this year! Instead of midway and final goals and prize drawings, we will have two tiers of activities and three separate drawings: 1) a drawing for smaller 1st and 2nd place prizes at each of the branches; 2) a systemwide drawing for six larger prizes; and 3) a Grand Prize drawing for a VISA gift card. Each of the easier Tier 1 activities (aka “badges”) earns you an entry into your home branch’s drawing for 1st and 2nd place prizes. Each of the more challenging Tier 2 badges earns you an entry into ALL three drawings. The more badges you complete, the more entries you earn, the better your chances of winning a prize! (All drawings to be held after August 7th, when the Summer Reading Adventure ends. Only one prize per person.)

Programs are now posted on our Event Calendar; note that all programs require registration this year because of social distancing and occupancy limits. If your usual location is already full, please check another location to see if they still have spots available. We hope you’ll understand the need to be careful this year, and we’ll do our best to make it as great an adventure as possible!
