A Universe of Stories
0 to 2 Years Old----

This summer you have from June 3- July 27 in which to explore the regions of space! 

"Space Mission" Challenge:

  • Readers have 8 weeks (June 3 – July 27) to read 5 minutes a day/ 5 days each week to their child (25 minutes per challenge).
  • You may use board books (BB), picture books (E), Easy Readers (JE), or even the same book over and over again.
  • Digital books and audios are also allowed. Tumble Books, rb digital and Overdrive are available for free at www.madisonlib.org.
  • Books shared at Baby/Toddler Times also count!
  • Each “space mission” challenge has additional activities you can choose to do in place of TWO 5 minute reading sessions; each one may be used only once per space mission challenge. For example, you may count attending a Library program only once per challenge. Make sure you log 5 minutes of reading under the "BOOKS" tab for each additional activity completed! For the "book title" just put in the name of the challenge completed.
  • Then... come to the Library when you have completed a "space mission" challenge to receive a prize. You can collect a new one each week!

This year, we’re changing how prizes are handed out.

Prizes will be awarded weekly according to this schedule:

  • Week 1: June 3-8: Program sign-ups only; no prizes available yet
  • Week 2: June 10-15: Prize 1 available starting June 10
  • Week 3: June 17-22: Prize 2 available starting June 17
  • Week 4: June 24-29: Prize 3 available starting June 24
  • Week 5: July 1-6: Prize 4 available starting July 1
  • Week 6: July 8-13: Prize 5 available starting July 8
  • Week 7/8: July 15-July 27: Extra weeks to catch up/get any prizes not yet received

You can read ahead of schedule, but prizes won’t be available until their release date. If you miss a week, you can collect it the next time.
For example, if you come in June 18, and haven’t received any prizes yet, you can pick up prize number 1 and 2.  If you’ve read past that point, and are ready for prize 3, you’ll have to wait until June 24 to get that next prize.

  • Don't worry if you miss a prize! Come to the library when you are back in town and collect your prize for the previous week.
Program may not be repeated! 
Only 1 set of prizes per person per summer while supplies last.
NO PRIZES will be given after Friday, July 27, 2019.
