Summer Reading 2021 Weekly Challenges

Weekly Challenges

Children and Teens can complete weekly challenges to enter drawings for a gift cards. PreReaders can complete one of the challenges to receive a small prize.

You can repeat the same challenges week to week, but we think it’s more fun to try out new things each week!

Submit your challenge by email to katies@lansinglibrary.org. Your submission could be featured on our website or in social media!

Adults are automatically entered into weekly drawings by reporting the number of books they have completed (each book equals one entry). Email katies@lansinglibrary.org or stop by the front desk in the Library to report your books.
