Summer Reading Challenge (all ages)

June 18 @ 14 h 00 min - 15 h 00 min

Summer Reading Challenge

For children and teens of all ages

 

 

How does the Children’s Summer Reading Challenge work?  

Library members who are interested in participating must register for the Summer Reading Challenge: Read the Universe (for ages 0–12) online. Registered participants may then stop by the Children’s and Teens’ Services Desk at the Library to pick up their Challenge Cards or download them online. For each day that you read 30 minutes or more, fill in one of the spaces on the card. After five days, the card will be complete. When a Challenge Card is completed, stop by the Children’s and Teens’ Services Desk to drop off your Challenge Card(s) in our raffle box and enter to win great prizes. A raffle will be held each week throughout the summer. The more challenges you complete, the more chances you have to win. For young children, being read to counts as well!

Complete as many challenges as you can between 18 June and 27 August 2022 and turn in your challenge cards at the Children’s and Teens’ Services Desk by 27 August to be entered into the grand prize drawing, and earn your certificate of participation.

 

How does the 10 Book Challenge for Teens work?

Library members who are interested in participating must register for the 10 Book Challenge (for ages 12–18) online. Registered participants may then stop by the Children’s and Teens’ Services Desk at the Library to pick up their Challenge Cards or download them online. For each challenge completed, teens win a new book! When you’ve completed a challenge, stop by the Children’s and Teens’ Services Desk and show your Challenge Cards to a member of the Children’s and Teens’ Services staff, in exchange for a prize book to keep!

All challenges must be completed between 18 June–27 August, and Challenge Cards

All registered participants will be send an invitation to meet other readers and celebrate the beginning of the Library’s Summer Reading Challenge on Saturday 18 June at 14h00! Children ages 0–6 must be accompanied by an adult at all times when inside the Library. Each child (aged 6–12) may participate in the program on their own, while their chaperone remains inside the Library. Teens may participate in this program on their own.

Important information: This event is for Library members, and advance registration is required. Caregivers are expected to familiarize themselves with the Library Policy for Children and the Rules and Code of Conduct so that we can provide a pleasant library environment for all patrons. Questions about collections and programs for children and teens can be sent to the Library’s Children’s and Teens’ Services Manager, Celeste Rhoads: celeste@americanlibraryinparis.org.
