Summer Reading

AGES 18+
JUNE 3 through JULY 27
  • Expand your world this summer by engaging in all types of Adventure. Each time you complete a “Hazard Level” by reading 1000 pages of your choice, bring your log into the Library for a small reward.
  • You can earn extra page points by completing “Additional Hazard Level Activities.” Each activity may be used only once, but you can do any of them at any point along the way. In Beanstack, make sure you log the correct number of pages of reading under the “LOGGING” badge area for each additional activity you complete! 
  • Your final Reading Goal is 3000 pages with checkins at every 1000 pages.
  • Digital books and audios are also allowed. Libby is available for free through your app store.  Learn how to use it at our Downloadables page or come talk to a librarian.
  • Any reading done before June 3rd DOES NOT COUNT towards summer reading challenges.
  • You must have your initialed paper log OR have logged your reading online to claim your prize.
  • You must choose either paper or online for the duration of the program, you cannot go back and forth.
  • Come to the Madison Library District lobby when you have made it to a Hazard Level (every 1000 pages) to receive a prize. You can collect a new prize every two weeks!
  • If you successfully complete all Levels by reading 3000 pages before Saturday, July 27th, you’ll be entered into our final drawings and receive five $1 coupons to use towards any unfortunate future fine incidents that may occur.
