Keep Kids Engaged This Summer! Reading, science, art, math, and critical thinking skills can slide for kids & teens during summer break. Looking for solutions?

Summer Challenge isn't just for kids anymore. Parents, caregivers, and all adults are invited, too! Participate in Summer Challenge for a chance to win items from our bookstores, a pair of Illuminarium and Meow Wolf tickets, gift cards, or cool swag from NBA Summer League and Vegas Golden Knights!

How It Works:

Reading + Activities = Fun All Summer Long

Then track your reading & activities in our special log, complete all three levels, and you’re eligible to win! Track your progress online through Beanstack and you will be automatically entered to win.
