Summer Challenge Activities

As part of our Summer STEAM Challenge mission, summer reading participants can ask for an art tile at the Children's Desk.  Children can then take the art tile home and create an art piece with any art medium they choose.  They can use paint, glitter, collage or anything they can think of to use.  Then, participants must bring the tile back to the Children's Desk in order to receive their points to complete the mission.

As part of our Summer Writing Challenge, children in the summer reading program can enter our Pet Show-n-Tell Contest.

Participants can submit their story and pet picture to the Children's Desk between June 18 -July 3rd. The contest will be on display July 6th - 31st.
