All Together Now, 2023 Summer Reading Challenge

Did you know that reading for just 20 minutes a day can open up a world of adventure and earn you fabulous prizes? We invite youth from birth up to 12th grade, to record reading progress on the summer reading game board available on June 1st in the summer issue of PRISM located at all KPL locations or download and print here. (PDF)

For every 20 days of reading, participants can stop by the library to claim a free prize book. After 40 days, you can get another prize book. Keep reading for 60 days, and you will win the final grand prize!  

As a special bonus, this year you can get your first free book just for signing up, so what are you waiting for? Step up to the Challenge!
