Pikes Peak Library Summer Reading Program (Summer of Adventure)
Eligible ages: 0-18
Registration: Online or at a library branch beginning June 1st. Go here for more information.
Prizes: PPLD has updated their summer reading program this year: instead of a paper chart, you’ll go online and earn virtual badges, and once the goal has been met, kids will earn a free book, according to the librarian I spoke to. (The coupon book is not going to be awarded this year.)
