It’s almost time! Next Monday the 2013 Summer Challenge begins!
Summertime is the best time of the year – you have the time to explore the world around you and learn new (fun!) things. So the Summer Challenge asks you to read, of course, but also to watch movies, try new food, attend library events, make stuff and even help out in the community. This year’s theme is Beneath the Surface, so we are going to ask you to go deep and discover more about yourself, your community and the world around you.
Get started by signing up at fplteens.ning.com today. You’ll get all the information you need to begin completing activities to earn points and badges on your profile. The more points you earn, the more raffle tickets you earn to spend at our Finale Party on our fabulous prizes!
Ah, prizes…that’s what you really want to know about, isn’t it!
Things you could win:
A $50 gift card raffle for those who have joined the Challenge and completed an activity each week!
A prize basket featuring products from Threadless!
A prize basket featuring products from ThinkGeek!
Autographed books from authors including Neal Shusterman, Wendy Mass, Jonathan Stroud, Brandon Sanderson, Lemony Snicket, Malie Meloy, Todd Strasser and more!
A metal detector!
Sound good? Then sign up for the Challenge today! And make sure to swing by either the Main or Branch Library on Wednesday, June 26 from 1 to 3 PM for our Summer Kickoff Party. There will be librarians there to answer all your questions and help you register for the Challenge and summer events. You’ll even be able to get a head start on some Challenge activities. Oh, and snacks. There will be snacks.
