Summer Challenge Super Reader Contest

Summer Challenge Super Reader Contest

Be Super this Summer

Do you love to read?  Can you read a book in one day?  Maybe you read more than one book a week?  You might be a DC Public Library Super Reader.  A Super Reader is any reader signed up for Summer Challenge who reads above and beyond 20 minutes a day.  Log each title of every book you read in June, July and August and you are on your way.  Super Readers have a chance to attend special invitation only events.

See below for details:

Children (Ages 6-12)

Two children (ages 6-12) from each neighborhood library who log the most books read throughout the summer will be invited to a special event with the 2019 Newbery Award winning author Meg Medina.

To participate: 

  • Log in to your Summer Challenge account

  • Log your reading time in the calendar first, then...

  • Each time you finish a book, choose the “Books” option after you log your time.

  • Record each book title you have completed.

Teens (Ages 13-19)

Super Reader Teens (ages 13-19) will be invited to our Teen Takeover event.  This event is for teens only and will have food, gaming, music and more.  Teens who log reading for at least 30 days in June and July will be entered into a raffle for a chance to participate in special VIP activities at the event.  Registration for the event is required.
