Summer Reading

JUNE 8 through AUGUST 1
  • Imagine Your Story at the Library this summer by exploring collections of folklore. Each time you complete a “volume of stories” by reading 1000 pages of your choice, bring your Folklore Journal into the Library for a small reward.
  • Your final destination is 3000 pages with checkpoints at every 1000 pages.
  • Digital books and audios are also allowed. Overdrive/Libby is available for free at https://madisonlib.org
  • You can earn extra page points by completing “Further Research.” Each activity may be used only once, but you can do any of them at any point along the way.
  • Any reading done before June 8th DOES NOT COUNT towards summer reading challenges.
  • You must have your initialed paper log OR have logged your reading online.
  • You must choose either paper or online for the duration of the program, you cannot go back and forth.
  • Then… come to the Madison Library District Community Room when you have made it to a Hero’s Journey checkpoint (every 1000 pages) to receive a prize. You can collect a new prize every two weeks!
Program may not be repeated!  Only 1 set of prizes per person per summer.
NO PRIZES 
will be given after Saturday, AUGUST 1, 2020.

Prizes

You can read ahead of schedule, but prizes won’t be available until their release date. If you miss a week, you can collect it the next time.

For example, if you come in July 6, and haven’t gotten any prizes yet, you can pick up prize number 1 and 2.  If you’ve read past that point, and are ready for prize 3, you’ll have to wait until July 20 to get that next prize.

Prizes will be available any time after their first availability date until August 1, while supplies last.

NO PRIZES AFTER AUGUST 1
