Super Summmer Challenge




BUILD A BETTER WORLD


Build a better world this summer by participating in The City Library's Super Summer Challenge! Beginning June 1, visit any City Library location to sign up, receive a Super Summer Challenge tracker, and start working toward entry into prize drawings. Fun, free events will also be offered at the Library all summer long. Learn more about events for each age group as well as how to track your challenge activities using the icons above.

TRACK YOUR SUPER SUMMER CHALLENGE ACTIVITIES

Choose any one-, two-, or three-brick activity from the lists below and color in the number of bricks that the activity is worth in your tracker once you complete it. When you complete enough activities to fill in all 15 bricks on Level 1, 2, or 3, bring your tracker to the Library to pick up a prize. When you've completed your entire tracker, turn it into the Library to be entered into a prize basket drawing. Completed trackers must be turned in by August 12.

LEVEL UP!

If you've completed your your tracker and want to challenge yourself even more, take part in Level Up! Read two books that fit the categories listed below in the Reading List section, then visit the Library to fill out a book review and a Level Up! entry form.

Each time you complete the Level Up! challenge, you'll be entered into a drawing for a prize basket. Earn more entries into the drawing by completing Level Up! as many times as you wish. All Level Up! entries must be turned in by August 12.

A note to Sprague Branch patrons:
• Prize drawing slips (including Level Up) for kids, babies, toddlers, and teens were lost in the flood. Please go to the Anderson-Foothill Branch to reenter your name for the drawings; they will have separate entry envelopes for Sprague's prize drawing.
