Imagine Your Story
TEENS ages 12- 17

This summer you have from June 8- August 1 to complete your HERO'S JOURNEY! 

Reading Goals:

  •  Advance on your journey by reading AND/OR completing the activities located on the Challenge tab. Each activity is worth 25 pages.
  • Your final destination is 1500 pages with checkpoints at every 500 pages.
  • Digital books and audios are also allowed. Overdrive/Libby is available for free at https://madisonlib.org
  • Make sure you log 25 book pages 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 Madison Library District Community Room when you have made it to a Hero's Journey checkpoint (every 500 pages) to receive a prize. You can collect a new prize every two weeks!

Prizes will be awarded according to this schedule:

  • June 8 -- Summer Reading 2020 BEGINS!
  • June 22 --  Reading Goal Prize 1 available
  • July 6 -- Reading Goal Prize 2 available 
  • July 20 -- Reading Goal Prize 3 available
  • July 25 -- Last day to sign up for Summer Reading 2020
  • August 1 -- Summer Reading Ends

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 July 6, 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 July 20 to get that next prize.

Don't worry if you miss a prize! Come to the library when you are available and collect your prize for the previous weeks.
Program may not be repeated! 
Only 1 set of prizes per person per summer while supplies last.
NO PRIZES will be given after Saturday, August 1, 2020.
