Our 2021 Summer Learning Challenge: Tails & Tales is here!

In years past, our program has been called Summer Reading, but we realized it is so much more than just reading. From June 12 through August 21, all ages can register for this imaginative animal and storytelling themed program by going to https://ccpl.beanstack.org. Our Summer Learning Challenge combines reading, our virtual programs, challenges, crafts, blogs, logging book reviews and more into an interactive experience designed to promote learning and get everyone excited about reading again!

Earn 100 points to complete the program and you will be entered into the grand prize drawing. Just for signing up, participants get a FREE Summer Learning t-shirt*! For the full program overview and guidelines, click here.

Check out our full list of Summer Learning Challenge 2021 programs and resources below. 

Don’t forget about the CCPL @ Home blog! Starting June 1, we’ll have tons of special blog posts connected to our SLC programs with exclusive content, crafts, reading lists and more!

*SLC t-shirts are available while supplies last, and can be picked up by making a Curbside Pickup Appointment or Library Appointment
