Summer is the perfect time to try new things.
Are you ready to take the Challenge?
Color your world from Monday, June 7–Saturday, July 31
Register for Reading Colors Your World! starting Monday, June 7 and pick up your activity log in either Youth Services (Birth–8th Grade) or Adult & Teen Services (7th–12th Grade and Adults). Junior High students can participate in both programs. Complete the Challenge by doing activities from the list on your activity log, and earn prizes! The Summer Learning Challenge ends July 31.
When you finish the log, by completing any combination of 24 activities, you will get a prize bag, virtual raffle entry, a completion certificate for school, and a free book! You can complete bonus logs to earn an additional raffle entry. You earn one raffle entry per log completed.
Bring your completed Logs to the Library for prize pickup! If you're not comfortable coming to the Library, email pictures of your Log and your name to firstname.lastname@example.org. Prizes will still need to be picked up at the Library.
Teens (8th–12th Grade) & Adults
You’ll be able to send us an email or text when you complete a row so we can check you in for the weekly prizes. The more often you check in, the more chances you have to win. First check in also earns you a chance at the Grand Prize! Repeat activities as many times as you like.
The phone number on our Teen and Adult Logs was incorrect. The correct number to text is 779-206-6239.
