Summer Reading Challenges

Reading is its own reward, but it can also earn you prizes and experiences at the Danbury Library this summer!

Final submissions must be made by August 17th. You can register and participate in the summer reading challenges from home or stop by the library and we can help get you started.

Adults

Complete 5 challenges specific to this year’s theme for a chance to win an Amazon ECHO, 2 tickets to Danbury Music Centre’s Nutcracker production, 2 tickets to a Danbury Palace Show, a $75 Visa Gift Card, or two 30-minute private dance lessons and a group class at Arthur Murray Dance Studio.

Teens

Win a book buck for every two hours you read. You can purchase prizes with your bucks, OR use them as tickets for prize drawings. We have some great prizes you can win, including music classes, a studio recording session, a limousine ride to school with your friends – maybe even a new book by your favorite author!

Kids

Win a book buck for every hour you read. You can purchase library store items with your bucks, OR use them as tickets for prize drawings. We have some great prizes you can win, including music themed gift baskets, a fire truck ride to school, or a new book by your favorite author!
