Tails and Tales 2021

Registration begins on June 21st for the following Tails & Tales Summer Library Program challenges:

Children (ages 0-12)

Children and their caregivers will log their reading time in Beanstack, and earn digital raffle tickets. Each week, in three age categories (0-4, 5-9, and 10-12 years), a drawing will be held for a book-and-prize bundle! Completing additional themed-challenges will earn extra entries in the weekly raffle. That’s not all: during the first week of summer reading, young participants who visit the Youth Room can take home a free book. Every week following, those who visit the Youth Room can choose an item to take home from our special prize box— just for visiting the Library
