How to play:
We will be hosting our Summer Reading program online this year. Beginning on June 1st, participants in the Adult program can earn points and badges by:
- Logging books. These should be considered Young Adult or higher reading levels. Each completed title entered is worth 100 points.
- Reviewing books. When you log a title, you have the option to submit a review as well, which will be evaluated by Library staff. Each approved review is worth 10 points, and will enter you into a weekly drawing for a City Brew gift card!
- Completing weekly activities. Visit your Summer Reading account each week, where we will have a new mission for you to do! Completing a weekly mission will earn you a badge and enter you into that week’s activity prize drawing.
- Play the games in your account. You can unlock new games as you go. Each completed game earns 5 - 20 points.
- Attend online Library events.
