Your Quest Should You Choose to Accept It
The Summer Reading Quest is a free self-paced program in which children choose their reading level and keep track of how much time they read or are read to each day. The quest is to read (or be read to) for at least 20 minutes every day during June and July. We know there will be diversions. Do your best! We included side challenges to complete along the way for more merriment. The Summer Reading Quest is open to hereos ages 0-12.
How it Works
Enter your reading and completed challenges online at bit.ly/gpl-srp2020. For every 60 minutes of reading (or being read to) submitted you get an entry into the grand prize drawing. For every three challenges completed you get one more entry for the grand prize drawing. The more you read, and the more challenges accomplished, the more chances you’ll have to win! Winners will be drawn randomly. Winners will be notified directly. If you need help or are unable to enter your reading and challenges online, contact us and we will assist you. The last day to submit time and challenges is July 31.
You may print reading logs from the library website (see below) or pick one up at the library. (Click the images below to download a printable PDF file.) The reading log is available to help you keep track of your progress but is not required. In order to be entered into the grand prize drawings you must enter time read and challenges completed online at bit.ly/gpl-srp2020. Reading materials include books, comics/graphic novels, magazines, audio books and ebooks.
Take and Make Activities
Each week between June1- July 31 pick up a different craft or STEAM activity to do at home (while supplies last). Grab an activity while grabbing some books to read.
Adventure awaits this summer with enchanting virtual programs. Head to the Georgetown Public Library Facebook page to join the fun.
