Summer Reading Challenge

Imagine Your Story with the Library



Welcome!

Our theme for our summer reading challenge this year is "Imagine Your Story," and focuses on classic fairytales and folktales, with a new twist here and there.  

To log your reading this year we will be using READsquared and have made a few changes in how points are earned, new missions, and suggested reading lists.

Are you new to READsquared or need a refresher?

The following video explains how to create an account, add a child's account, and many other features we will be using this year.

As always if you have any questions can call us, email us at help@ccld.us, or visit us.


What's new for this year?


New for this year we will be logging the number of minutes read rather than the number of pages read. Certain missions this year will be worth points and count toward your overall goal. If you would like more activities we will have printed packets for you to pick up. Also, we have several suggested reading lists for you to choose your next read from and can be found in the following categories:

  • Once Upon a Time
  • Timeless Tale
  • Magical Creatures
  • A New Twist on an Old Tale
  • A Hero's Journey
  • These are only suggestions and not required to complete the challenge.


    What events will be held this year?

    Do to the unique situation we have found ourselves in this year all of our programming will be done through virtual events. We will announce these on our Facebook page and have set up a private group, Imagine Your Story 2020 Events - CCLD that patrons can join, and some will be posted on our website, here, and on our front page. Our performers will be Babaloo, DJ Edwards, Magician, and Page Turner Adventures. Page Turner Adventures will provide 10 weeks of entertainment with 5 shows per week. And will include crafts, recipes, and more that fit each weeks theme.
