Take the challenge!
Pick up a registration form at the library and return the completed registration form to the library or the bookmobile now through June. Register soon for your best chance of success.


Start keeping track of your points on the Activity Card you’ll receive upon registering.
Bring it to the library when you’ve made 25 points to get your tickets and the next card. Complete all four cards for a total of 100 points and you’ve met the challenge.

Each time you turn in a card you’ll get five tickets to drop in our raffle prize buckets as you please. You’ll also get a vote in the Community Goal (see below).

Anyone who finishes all four cards and meets the Challenge will receive a Summer Challenge T shirt and be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing for their age group. Kids and teens will also receive a book/prize bag. All finishers are invited to the Summer Challenge Grand Finale Event July 7th.
