Visit the official Summer Challenge site to access all of the challenges and create accounts for yourself and your family.

Log your books and activities from June 13–August 31 to be in the running for exciting prize baskets!


We’ll miss our kickoff celebration at the library, but a quarantine can’t stop the Summer Challenge! Join us to read, explore, have fun, and earn prizes!

Open to all ages and reading levels, the Summer Challenge encourages you to actively stimulate your mind throughout the season.

For the first time, we’re bringing the challenge to you completely online.

Earn digital badges every time you read or listen to a book, find a hidden code in our online summer programs, or complete a fun challenge
that helps you explore the library and community. 

Visit a different park, birdwatch, go on a scavenger hunt for Ypsi history markers, or find new music on Hoopla. Set your own reading goal.

The more you read, the more chances you have to win, but everyone who reads at least 6 books earns a $5 gift card. Everyone who completes at least 6 challenges earns a Buffalo Wild Wings coupon. Kids and teens get a free meal, adults get a free appetizer with any purchase.

We're pleased to continue offering remote services while our buildings are closed to the public to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. More info.
