Mid-Columbia Libraries (MCL) invites readers of all ages to read beyond the beaten path! The annual Summer Reading Challenge begins today, and participants can read or listen for 15 hours before Aug. 19 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 and engage in activities to earn badges and be eligible for prizes. Or, participants can pick up a challenge log in person at their local MCL branch. Those who register by July 1 will be entered to win a prize pack of fun board games.
Kids ages 12 and under who finish the challenge receive a free book; and teens and adults get a book bag, while supplies last. All finishers will be entered to win grand prizes like a hoverboard or bike. All prizes are provided by Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries.
MCL hosts a variety of fun and engaging programs throughout the summer. June events include the Summer Reading Challenge Kickoff Party on June 15 at 2 pm at the Keewaydin Park library and Glow Hike on Badger Mountain on Friday, June 24 at 8:30 pm. Reptile Man and children’s music concerts take place later in the summer. Information about weekly and special events can be found at midcolumbialibraries.org/calendar and on Facebook.
