Summer Library Club 2022

SLC 2022

The 2022 Summer Library Club will run from June 1 to July 31.

This year's theme is "Oceans of Possibilities."

Register online via Beanstack. You can also use the game sheet for paper registration at your branch.

All ages can earn up to 50 points.

Each book, newspaper, or magazine equals one point. Also, each age group has different activities, including attending a library event. Each activity is worth one point. The activities are repeatable, which means that participants can do an activity as many times as they want.

The points lead up to entry into a grand prize drawing, and prizes differ depending on your age group.

  • Early Literacy (0-5 yrs.)
    • For every 5 points, participants will win a cute rubber squirt toy up to 50 points. At twenty points, participants will get an entry into the grand prize drawing and win a book.
  • Children (6-12 yrs.)
    • For every 5 points, participants will win friendship beads up to 50 points. At twenty points, participants will get an entry into the grand prize drawing and win a book.
  • Teens* (12-18 yrs.)
    • When participants reach 5 points they will get to choose between the travel mug or a lanyard. The participant will also get an entry into the grand prize drawing of LED light bars. Every additional 5 points up to 50 points, the participant will get another entry into the grand prize drawing. There is a grand prize for each location.
  • Adults* (18 yrs. and up)
    • When participants reach 5 points they will get to choose between the travel mug or a lanyard. In Beanstack, the participant will also win tickets to put toward one of the grand prize drawings, for Samsung Galaxy Buds Live or an Amazon Fire HD tablet. Every additional 5 points up to 50 points, the participant will get another ticket to put toward one of the grand prize drawings. There are two prizes in total for the system. Patrons who fill out a paper log will be entered into the grand prize drawing, unless otherwise noted.

*Ages 12 and 18 can participate in both groups.

Happy Reading!
