Mid-Columbia Libraries (MCL) is serving up the Summer Reading Challenge for readers of all ages! The annual challenge began June 1, and participants can read or listen for 15 hours before Aug. 18 to complete the challenge and be entered to win a prize.
Registration and details are at midcolumbialibraries.org/reading-challenges. Participants can use the Beanstack app to log their reading, earn badges, and be eligible for prizes. Or, participants can pick up a reading log in person at their local MCL branch.
Kids ages 12 and under who finish the challenge receive a free book; and teens and adults get a lunch tote bag, while supplies last. All finishers will be entered to win a Nintendo Switch Mario bundle. All prizes are provided by Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries.
MCL has an exciting line up of Summer Reading Challenge activities and performances scheduled including an online author visit with Josh Funk on June 7 and 8 and live reptiles with the Reptile Lady in Prosser, Kennewick, Pasco, and Othello on June 22. Additional children’s music concerts, puppet shows, and other entertainment take place later in the summer. Information about weekly and special events can be found at midcolumbialibraries.org/calendar and on Facebook.
