Our Summer Adventure kicks off May 23.
This summer, we’ll read, learn, and explore together as Read City USA's Tails and Tales million-hour reading expedition heads for the hills (Foothills, that is) and the briny deep. Complete summer challenges to earn a whale-y amazing prize package!
Complete 20 challenges to earn your prize package. Challenges include going on an adventure; creating a craft or letter; attending a library program; and reading and logging in the Tails and Tales reading challenge. Pick up a game card at any library location to get started or print your own.
Kids and teens will earn a reward package of area treats and attractions, plus a Read City USA keychain. From pizza to ice cream, comic books to museum admissions, there’s a reward for everyone. Available June 1.
Adults can earn a Read Around the World tote. (And know that by modeling the habit of reading, together we can grow kids who love to read!)
