The Summer Library Challenge is for all ages! It's a fun (and free) way for families (including grandparents and grandchildren) to enjoy the library together.
Sign up for our six-week newsletter and get all the details on our can't miss, free summer programming sent straight to your email. One email per week for six weeks, then we delete the list.
Each department and library has fantastic things planned for the summer, when we release the schedule you will be able to click the buttons below to learn more!
- Visit tadl.org/events regularly for details on programs, and get those reading minutes logged!
- All minutes need to be logged and prize tickets need to be allocated (how-to video) by July 30, 9 pm!
- Plan to join us for the finale party - July 31, Pre-readers at 11 am; All ages at 6 pm - Hull Park!
Reminder - read anything you like, and log your minutes. Listen to an audiobook, have someone read to you, read the same book multiple times - if you're reading we'll count it!
Why is summer reading important?
Our theme this year emphasizes our belief that it's important to both relax AND read over the summer. Summer is a great time to read whatever you find fun! For students this is especially important, because it helps maintain those important reading/comprehension skills built up over the school year.
Keeping reading skills in tiptop shape is important for adults too!
