READING IS… THE 2021 SUMMER READING CHALLENGE IS HERE!

Reading is… Powerful! Relaxing! Adventurous! Thrilling!

And this summer, Reading is… Winning!

The Chattahoochee Valley Libraries are once again encouraging EVERYONE to read this summer as part of our annual Summer Reading Challenge!

The rules are simple…  Just read ten books (for kids, including babies!) or for four hours (for older kids, teens and adults) and you are on your way to winning. See below for the many ways you can log and report your reading to us.

The fun starts on May 15 and runs through July 31st.

GOLDEN TICKET TUESDAY

What could be better than coming to your library and getting prizes? Well that’s happening on Tuesday June 1… Golden Ticket Tuesday!

Visit your favorite branch of the Chattahoochee Valley Libraries during normal business hours that Tuesday (folks in Marion County – your day will be Wednesday June 2). Everybody present will receive their very own SUMMER READING STARTER KIT, a tote with reading logs, some fun prizes, and their very own GOLDEN TICKET! Scratch off the ticket to see if you’re one of the lucky winners of a $50 VISA Gift Card.

Remember that there is only one starter kit per person, and you must be present to receive a kit. Offer is good only while supplies last, some come early!

HOW TO LOG YOUR READING

This summer we have two ways to log your reading: our new Beanstack Online Website and App, and good old fashioned paper.

Beanstack

Beanstack allows you a quick way to log your reading, either online or through their Beanstack Tracker App, available for Apple and Google Play. You can create accounts for yourself and for your children, and you can enter your reading as an individual or your family.

It’s quick and easy!

Paper

Good old paper! Some of us still love the paper logs. You can pick up an individual or family log at your favorite library branch, or you can download an individual or family log here. Print these out, fill them out, then bring them back in to claim your prize!

COMPLETIONS MEAN PRIZES!

Once you have finished your ten books or four hours, come on in to the Library! If you used a paper log, bring it with you… otherwise we will look up your account in Beanstack.

Your first completion brings you a nice thank you gift from the Library – a new book for kids, water bottles and mood cups for teens, and, for the grown-ups, your choice from stainless water bottles, mugs, planters and power banks. And it gets you your first grand prize entry in our End-of-Summer Grand Prize Drawing for VISA gift cards and more!

But don’t stop there! Each additional completion earns you another small completion prize (stickers, buttons, candy, mood pencils, etc) AND another Grand Prize Entry!

VIRTUAL PROGRAMS

Don’t forget, we have wonderful virtual programs for all ages this summer. New programs will debut on the Libraries’ Facebook and YouTube channels each Monday in June and July and will include:

·        Simple Steps Storytime (especially for babies, toddlers and preschool) – Mondays at 10:00am

·        Middle Matters – a fun, lively combination of games, crafts, entertainment and more for older kids – Mondays at 11:00am

·        Adult Adventuring – learn a new craft, or take a quick journey, or listen in on a history program – Mondays at 3:00pm

·        TeenTime – we’ll be cooking, we’ll be gaming, we’ll be BookTok-king and more – Mondays at 4:00pm

Our virtual programs will remain available all summer long, so don’t worry if you miss an episode!

And, as conditions allow, we will be doing some special outdoor Pop-up Programs at our libraries. Keep up to date with all events at CVLGA.org.
