Summer Reading Challenge 2019

Find Your Space — Any Space Can Be a Reading Space

Sign Up Available June 1st!

At any KPL location or play online.

The challenge this summer is to Find Your Space.

Everyone needs a space they can call their own. A space where they can feel content, safe, and free to be themselves. For many people, reading provides that space, an escape from everyday obligations and stress. This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is all about finding your space. We invite you to accept the challenge and find a space to call your own!

This year’s Summer Reading Challenge has been customized for children, teens and adults to provide each age group their own unique way to find their space! For children, Any Space Can Be a Reading Space. For teens, we challenge them to Make Their Own Space, and adults, we encourage them to Find Their Inner Space.

Sign up today at or visit your local KPL Location to pick up a printed game board.
