How to Play:

  1. Register at any PPLD Library or online (registration link available June 1 at 9 a.m.)
  2. Begin at “Start Here.” Complete 9 spaces to earn each prize in order (1,2, and 3). Color a space for every 20 minutes you read, or for every 2 picture books read to you.
  3. Collect your prize at your nearest PPLD Library.
  4. When you reach prize 3, you have completed the game! Congratulations!

Please play this game only once, but keep reading in the Super Hero Readers bonus round!
Here’s what you do:

  1. Color in a star for every 5 hours you read.
  2. After each completed 5 hours visit your library and a your name to our super Hero readers display.
  3. When you complete 25 hours you earn cool shoe bling, and enter a drawing for a Hero party!

Baby/Toddler:
You don't have to be reading on your own yet to play. In the baby/toddler game (ages 0-2), you mark a space each time you share a book or do an activity with your baby. Win some fun bubbles, a finger puppet, and a board book.

But wait! There's more!
Over 800 programs this summer are all free, and include art, science, magicians, legos, puppets, music, animals, crafts, and dinosaurs. You can even come in and practice reading to a real live dog! At the end of July, we have four parties with inflatables, bubbles, hula hoops, face painting, dress-up, and an obstacle course.
