Summer Quest: reading challenges for all ages!


This year’s Summer Quest children’s program is being offered in-person as well as online. The theme this year is Tails and Tales. For five Fridays (July 9-August 6) at 10 a.m., Paul Fuller playground comes alive with stories, crafts, games, and special presenters. Children ages 2-11 are welcome – a registrations form must be completed for each child. Children age 5 and under must be with an adult.


Our opening program featured speakers from the Pennsylvania State Beekeepers Association, who provided fascinating facts about bees.


On Friday, July 16, our guest presenters will be from Laurel Hill Park. They will offer a program about Birds of Prey.



Those unable to attend the Friday sessions may still earn prizes with our online Reading Challenge.



Teens (age 12-18) may participate in our Teen Reading Challenge by logging their reading online or on a paper log that can be picked up at the library. Each 2 hours of reading earns a ticket, that may be entered into one of four prize drawings to be at a program-closing pizza party on August 6 at 6 p.m. Prizes include an iTunes gift card, an Amazon gift card, a candy collection, and a “Words Matter: Speak Kindness” t-shirt (size large).




There is a challenge for adults, too. Each book read qualifies for an entry into our weekly prize drawing to win gift cards for local businesses. This week’s prize is a $15 gift card for Thomas Drug Store. Other prizes include a $15 gift certificate for The White House restaurant, a $15 Food Lion gift card, and a $15 Sheetz card. Entries may be made online, or on paper forms available at the library.


Those wishing to participate in any of these challenges online may do so here:
