How It Works

Challenge yourself to a summer of reading. Fight summer boredom or reconnect with your favorite pastime and earn prizes along the way.

Can I join?

Yes! All ages are welcome.

What should I read?

Read anything. Read everything. Read aloud to others or to yourself. Books, ebooks, audiobooks, magazines...it all counts.

Reading can reduce stress, increase empathy for others and keep your mind sharp. And it's fun!
