By participating in the 2017 Summer Learning program, teens can earn points doing cool activities at home, attending awesome programs at Denison Public Library throughout the summer, and, of course, reading!
What’s new in 2017?
Denison Public Library’s signature program has been redesigned as a Summer Learning Program. This program promotes reading and encourages creative exploration, active skill-building, and critical thinking—all necessary to “Build a Better World,” which is our 2017 program theme.
From June 9 through July 24, teens have three ways to earn entries toward prizes through a new, easy-to-use online tracking system.
Who can participate?
Students ages 13 - 18 years old.
How do teens earn Free Books and Entry for the Grand Prize Drawing?
Teens can earn entries for the prize drawings by doing any combination of the following:
Reading! Teens earn an entry for completing the required 600 minutes of reading.
Volunteer at the library, participants will earn an extra entry for each day of volunteer service.
Attending programs at DPL throughout the summer. Teens will receive a secret code when they attend these programs and will receive an additional entry when they log the code into their online account. All entries are credited when activity is logged into the participant’s online account.
Do I still need to read or can I just do activities and programs?
Yes, you need to read in order to complete the program.
When can I start logging activities and books?
Everyone will be able to enroll and begin logging on June 1st.
Are there still prizes?
As in past years, teens that complete Levels 1 (200 minutes), 2 (400 minutes), and 3 (600 minutes) earn a free book at each level or have the option of $15 in Library Bucks. Complete the program to receive an entry into the grand prize drawings!
Library Bucks can be used for 3D printing, copies, prints, faxes, or prizes such as earbuds, wristbands, lanyards, and more!
