Summer Reading Challenge 2019

Saturday, May 11 - Saturday, August 3

Points and Prizes

By participating in the Summer Reading Challenge, you'll start earning points that will help you win prizes. How do you earn the points? Pretty simple:

  • 1 minute reading = 1 point (audiobooks count too!)
  • 1 activity = 10, 15, or 20 points depending on difficulty/age range
  • 1 book review = 5 points
  • 1 library event attended = 20 points

Your first reward comes when you hit 500 points:

  • Free book from the prize cart (yours to keep!)
  • Coupon book for local restaurants and attractions (kids & teens only)
  • One ticket for a chance to win a prize basket for your age group

But that doesn't mean you should stop reading at 500 points! You get another prize ticket for every 500 additional points you earn (up to a limit of 5000 total points, or 10 tickets). You also get a ticket for completing a full Activity Badge.

The tickets and drawings are all online, but they work just like a regular raffle — you choose a basket for each ticket, and we'll pull a winning ticket for each basket at the end of Summer Reading.

To get started, track your points, or learn more, head to Beanstack. Still have questions? Ask a librarian!
