Summer Reading Challenge Rules
Ages 18 and Older
- Record the time you reads in the reading log provided; this includes reading alone or reading to someone. Write it down in 30-minute increments. If you run out of space, ask for a new log.
- To complete the challenge, you must read at least 1,470 minutes (24.5 hours) by July 22nd.
- Once you complete the challenge, turn in your reading logs to be entered into the grand prize drawing. You can start turning in logs on July 1st. The last day to turn in reading logs is July 22nd.
- Everyone who completes the challenge gets their name in the grand prize drawing to be held at the end of summer reading.
- Like something you read? Tell us more on the provided book review form to possibly be featured on our website or social media and to be entered into an additional prize drawing.
Don’t forget to take the LSTA Survey for Summer Reading 2019 — this helps libraries get funding for the summer reading events through state and federal programs.
