Universe of Stories Summer Reading Program Begins
June 1, 2019
Early Literacy & Children’s Rules
Pick up a game board from the library and complete challenge spaces to win prizes. The spaces can be completed in any order and all spaces must be completed in order to earn an entry into the grand prize drawing of your choosing. There is no limit to the number of game boards you complete, but they must be completed one at a time. There is a program for all children younger than school age (babies-preschool), and another for elementary-aged children, those entering Kindergarten-5th grades for the 2019/2020 academic year. All game boards must be turned in to the library by 5:30 PM on Saturday, August 17.

The teen summer reading program is time-based. Pick up a teen summer reading log and read anything you’d like! Each planet on the log represents 20 minutes. As you read, mark off time and record your reading material on the back of your log. For every 2 hours you read up to 20 hours, you will get to break a space in our punch box, revealing a prize ranging from candy to a free book to an entry into a prize drawing. At 10 and 20 hours, you will win a guaranteed entry into a prize drawing. For each additional 2 hours you read beyond 20, you will earn an entry into a grand prize drawing. All logs must be turned in by 5:30 PM on Saturday, August 17.
1) Allegan Event passes + backpack full of snacks
2) LitJoy Loot Crate (choose from middle grade or YA crate)
3) 3D printer pen + stencils + filament refills
Pick up your summer reading bookmark and read any book you would like—from home, a friend or the library. Fill out the front of the book mark and return it to the library. Every Monday, starting June 10, you will have a chance to win a gift card to a local business. All entries are then placed in a bin for the grand prize drawing. Weekly drawing entries must be in by 5:30 PM the Saturday before; the last day to turn in entries is Saturday, August 17 at 5:30 PM. This program is for all adults ages 18 and up.
