MPPL Summer Reading Challenge: Reading Colors Your World

Read, explore and create with the Mount Prospect Public Library this summer and discover a world of fun! The all-ages Summer Reading Challenge takes place June 1-Aug. 15. The more you read, the more chances you have to earn prizes.

Participants can track their progress electronically using the Beanstack app or website, or with a paper log available for pickup at the library or print at home from the website.

Children can count their days read or days someone reads to them to earn prizes and a chance to win a Nintendo Switch Lite.

Teens are invited to join Team Corgi or Team Dragon to compete and earn tickets toward prizes.

Adults can choose any books to read, including fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, young adult books, Playaways, audiobooks, e-books, and e-audio. For every book read, earn an entry for a grand prize drawing ticket.
