How does it work?
Fill in a square on your game board for every 30 minutes you spend reading, writing, or working on assignments this summer. When you fill in every space, show your completed board to a librarian in the junior department to earn your summer prize and be entered to win the grand prize!

If you complete 20 hours of literacy activities this summer, you will be invited to an end-of-summer celebration on August 20th with Mayor Mark at Roger’s Park. We’ll announce the winners of the Grand Prize drawings and launch a rocket! Popsicles will be served courtesy of the FRIENDS of the Danbury Library.
