Quarantine Reading Challenge for kids

In order to encourage all of our young patrons to keep reading during their time off from school, Miss Gwen has created this super fun reading challenge! This challenge is for kids 0 to 5th Grade. Parents, if your kids aren’t reading on their own yet, read to them to complete the challenges. You’ll have fun too!

You can print this form or simply copy down the categories if you don’t have a printer. Complete the challenges and return it to the Library after we re-open for a special prize! NO LIBRARY CARD REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE!!!!
