Public libraries are a huge resource for free and cheap events and resources in any city, but the Columbus Metropolitan Library wants to reward everyone just for reading this summer. The Summer Reading Challenge runs from May 29 though July 31, 2021 to encourage people of all ages to read, from babies to adults.
Summer Reading Challenge is online again for 2021.
The program is divided into four age categories, each with different rewards and prize opportunities for 30 days of reading (15 minutes per day).
You’ll get a Game Board with activities and a free book while supplies last.
Summer Reading Challenge reading minutes and activities must be completed and entered online by July 31.
Check out the website for additional information and prizes, including gift card raffles, coupons, and more. Adults can join the Challenge too, so sign up the whole family!
