We have a special list of challenges you can do with younger learners to get ready for kindergarten. Find them in the list of EXPLORE CHALLENGES or download to refer to often.

Read, Learn, Explore!

Each summer we challenge everyone to read, learn, and explore the community. You can earn online badges and chances to win themed prize baskets filled with goodies from local businesses.

How it works​


Set your own goal for how much you want to read and track your progress online. Everyone who reads or listens to at least six books earns a prize.


Learn something new at a library program. We’ll share secret codes at library programs. Or find the secret code on the program’s webpage or in the YouTube video for virtual programs to unlock special digital badges.


Take challenges created by library staff that encourage you to get to know library services and the Ypsilanti community. Each challenge earns a different digital badge.


Each digital badge earns another chance at the grand prize of your choice, and families can engage in fun learning activities together so kids keep their brains active and ready to return to school in the fall.
