Remember the long, lazy days of summer when you were a kid? You know, back before you had to work through the summer? Well, both you and your kids can still enjoy the long, lazy days of summer, and join the Calgary Public Library and the Ultimate Summer Challenge to keep themselves entertained and learning at the same time!

Make reading your superpower this summer! From June 1 – August 31, 2022, families, kids, teens, and even adults can sign up to track their reading hours and participate in superhero-themed activities and programs for the chance to win lots of great prizes. You can register anytime throughout the summer with your free library card, available online or in any of the 21 Calgary Library locations.

Everyone who registers for the Ultimate Summer Challenge is entered to win great prizes. Each age group will have their own set of unique prizes, including activity kit subscriptions, personalized books, iPads, Nintendo Switches, Chromebooks, gift baskets for book lovers, and more. Participants will also have the opportunity to enter additional weekly prize draws throughout the summer on top of the grand prize draws.

Read (Family Fun Calgary)

Kids can get a paper Challenge Map in the library to help track their reading or print one off at home. If you have kids ages 12 – 17, get them engaged with the Teen Takeover version of the Ultimate Summer Challenge. They can track their reading through the free Library resource, Beanstack, and complete fun, creative challenges to earn digital badges. The more badges earned, the more chances they have to win great prizes.

The Ultimate Summer Challenge is perfect for the littlest one who still likes to chew the books you read to them, the middle-schooler who is passionate about graphic novels, or the teen who decides he doesn’t read anymore. Your kids will be more school-ready in the fall by reading, learning, and creating during the Ultimate Summer Challenge. Plus, it’s a ton of fun for the whole family! Register soon and get reading!
