YDL's Summer Challenge kicks off in:

Join the fun!

From June 15–August 25, enjoy STEM activities (courtesy of a renewed $30,000 grant from Toyota), Youth Arts Alliance workshops, a  fairy door scavenger hunt, and more. You can even ride the bus—courtesy of TheRide—for free on the weekends. The Summer  Challenge encourages everyone to read and explore what’s happening in our area by offering prizes for reading and participating in  library and community activities throughout the summer.

Each digital badge grants you one entry for the grand prize drawing, and kids and teens get to pick a prize out of a treasure box every time they earn 10 badges. Every week there will be a prize drawing for kids and teens who earn a badge during the week.

This year’s YDL Summer Challenge will kick off with county fair flair! On June 15 from 2-4pm at the Whittaker branch, find a petting zoo,  live music, a cake decorating contest, bounce house, STEM inspired carnival booths, prizes, and more.
