Douglas County Libraries’ 2020 Summer Reading Program is Splash Into Summer! The annual reading program is for all ages. Kids, teens and adults can register online for the program at any time. You’ll want to mark your for June 1 to 15, when the libraries will provide curbside service for picking up your reading log, registration packet, and sign-up and mid-way prizes, while supplies last.
For every 20 minutes you read or are read to, you color in a wave in your reading log. If you color all the waves, it equals 1,000 minutes of reading. But participants can choose their own challenge — shoot for 500 minutes, read one chapter per week or try for 20 pages a day. It’s up to you.
When the fun is done, pick up your prize while supplies last. Kids get a free book.
Readers of all ages will be entered into drawings for more prizes including a 2021 season pass to Pirates Cove Water Park (kids 0-12), a 2021 season pass to Elitch Gardens (teens) and a stand-up paddleboard (adults).
