Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading Challenge 2022

The Lafayette Public Library invites you to dive deep into reading this summer by joining the Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading Challenge!

We are challenging all ages in the community to reach a personal goal of 600 minutes and a combined community goal of 2,000,000 minutes read from June 1 to July 31. Read books and participate in activities to earn virtual badges. Once you’ve read 600 minutes, stop by the library to claim your prize and be entered for a grand prize drawing. The more badges you earn, the more chances you have to win! Keep reading and recording to help us reach our community goal by the end of summer. Don’t forget to help us kick off summer reading on June 4, 2022 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm for our Oceans of Possibilities Summer READing Kickoff!

Register:
Sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge online at lafayettepubliclibrary.beanstack.org or call your favorite library location beginning June 1. Children, teens, and adults can participate and earn prizes. (*Prize distribution will begin July 1.)

Read & Record:
Read a total of 600 minutes (or 10 hours) beginning June 1 through July 31. That can be done in as little as 10 minutes per day! For minutes to count toward an award, you may read (or listen to) books, magazines, graphic novels, or newspapers on your reading level. Audiobooks and reading to a non-reader can be logged, too! You can find a Summer Reading Log printed in our June – August 2022 BookTalk newsletter (*coming soon!) or Here is a PDF of our summer reading log!.

Redeem:
Once you’ve read 600 minutes, stop by the library to claim your prize and be entered for a grand prize drawing. The more badges you earn, the more chances you have to win! Keep reading and recording to help us reach our community goal by the end of summer!

Summer reading programs are designed to encourage students to keep reading during the summer months. Light reading over the summer is a fun and easy way for students to prevent a decline in reading achievement. With our 2022 Oceans of Possibilities Summer Reading Challenge, children can discover learning activities, teens can strengthen reading skills, and adults can explore great books.

There are so many benefits to participating in our Summer Reading Challenge: It’s easy to participate; the adventures are endless because a good book can take you anywhere; reading can improve your health and happiness at any age; and last but not least, reading is lots of fun!

Summer Reading Sponsors include Bike Lafayette, Broussard & David LLC, Chick-fil-A, Hub City Cycles, Kart Ranch, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, and Tropical Smoothie Cafe.
