Virtual Teen Summer Library Challenge 2020

Welcome to the 2020 Georgetown Public Library Teen Summer Reading Program! We’ve put together a calendar of challenges and reading suggestions for you to do at home. Set a reading goal for yourself and track your reading every day. The more you read and complete challenges, the more points you’ll earn toward a chance to win! The Grand Prize winner will receive a 3-month subscription to a Loot Crate of their choice. Three runners up will receive a 1-month subscription to a Loot Crate of their choice.

The Hogwarts House Cup Challenge is back this year! Will Hufflepuff remain victorious, or will another House take the lead? Select your house, then read and complete challenges to earn points. The House with the most points will win the Hogwarts Cup! Check social media or the windows outside the Teen Space to see which House is in the lead throughout the summer.

Print the challenge log at home (see below), or ask for one at the library next time you’re in. The library is open for grab-and-go service. You can read more about that here. The summer reading program will be virtual this year to keep everyone safe during COVID-19. This means there will be no in-person programming at the library this summer.

Follow along with the challenges on our Instagram, @gt_teenspace. Send us pictures of your completed challenges to be featured!
