Join the Summer  Reading  Challenge
June 6-July 30

Kids and Teens—read from June 6th to July 30th and mark the map to gather prizes along the way. Get the map in the Smart Store Guide, at your local branch, or by downloading and printing it.

Here’s how it works:

  • From June 6 to July 30, mark one space for each day you read and receive a prize for every 5 days you read.
  • If you read for 40 days, bring in your completed map for a prize. Read an additional 10 days for a bonus prize.
  • Use the Bingo sheet to help you find new things to read! Win a prize for completing a bingo.
