Kids' Summer Reading

Summer Adventure

Greetings from Zorb! Zorb has just come from a faraway planet and wants to learn all there is to know about life here on earth. To learn, Zorb would like to tag along with us on a Summer Adventure at Your Library!

This year’s Summer Adventure at Your Library (June 15 to August 15, 2020) looks a little different than in the past. Read on to learn how to participate!

Beginning June 15

Step 1: Get a game card!

If none of those options work, contact your local branch and we’ll make sure you and your family can participate!

Step 2: Complete the challenges!

Choose some of our suggested activities to complete the game card, or create your own adventures! 

Need some ideas? Sign up for our weekly newsletter for adventures, book suggestions, and more from our Washington County librarians!

Once you’ve filled in all 10 planets, you can enter our prize drawing and earn a reward!

Beginning July 1

Step 3: Get your completion reward!

Once your game card is complete, you’ll earn a reward book!

To receive your reward, stop by your local library during open hours and talk with a librarian! 

We also have a limited number of curbside pickup appointments for vulnerable members of the community who cannot enter the library safely. You can also use this process to arrange a time to pick up your reward.

Step 4: Enter our end-of-summer drawing!

In addition to a completion reward, kids who complete Summer Adventure can also enter our end-of-summer prize drawing!

You can enter the drawing by: 

  • Dropping off your completed game card in the entry box inside your local library or at curbside pickup.
  • Fill out and submit an online game card. 

Summer Adventure at Your Library is open to children from birth through age 11. One completion award per child.

Don’t forget about our summer reading programs for teens and adults!

Summer Adventure at Your Library is made possible by the cooperation of Washington County; Washington County Library; MELSA, the Metropolitan Library Service Agency; and the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Additional sponsors include KARE 11 and the Star Tribune.
