What to do (all ages)

Log activities between May 18 and August 1. You may log one activity per day. You do not have to log activities on consecutive days. By logging only one activity a day, you can participate all summer long.

Earn a virtual badge, a grand prize entry ticket, and a coupon or small prize for every 5 activities completed (there are 5 small prizes available).

Keep logging activities until August 1 for more grand prize entries (you can enter the grand prize drawing up to 12 times, including the badges earned for signup and completion). Pick up all prizes by August 3.

Teens – As an extra challenge, you can stop by the Information Desk for a BINGO card, read books to complete the BINGO card, and return the card to the Information Desk at the library for a book prize (you can win up to 5 BINGO books).

Adults and Teens – Get a custom, limited-edition "Read What You Fancy" enamel pin when you earn 5 badges.
