The theme for 2016 Summer Reading Challenge was designed by local artist, Paul Sizer! Super Cool!
Are You Up to the Challenge?
Read or listen to books for at least 20 minutes each day, every day!
If you accept the challenge, simply record each day that you read for 20 minutes or more on your challenge card or log your reading online.
When you have completed 15 days (they do not need to be consecutive days), bring your challenge card to the library for a reward! (Or let the library staff know you earned a reward online.)
KPL now offers an online reading challenge, where you can log
your daily reading, view book lists, get book recommendations, and earn badges for
completing learning activities.
Earn incentives by logging reading, attending events, and completing activities this summer.
There are 5 learning tracks in which you can earn a digital badge and a sticker for your challenge card: Lead, Create, Read, Explore, Move. Earn all 5 badges and get a special prize!
Register a Class or Group
Reading groups are welcome, too! Sign up all of the readers in your class, camp, or other organization quickly and easily.
There are 92 possible reading days from Wednesday, June 1 through the challenge’s
end on Wednesday, August 31. You may complete four, 15-day reading segments within
those 92 days, so you can earn up to four rewards!
Claiming Your Reward
When it’s time to claim a reward you can either
• bring your challenge card to any KPL location to report your progress
• let staff know you earned a reward online
Staff will record your progress and give you a prize.
Please report all game play at least 15 minutes before the library closes. All rewards must be redeemed no later than Wednesday, August 31. No exceptions.
