Activity Lists for the CCPL Summer Challenge

Complete any of the activities below to earn points. Many of the activities can be repeated as often as you like. For each activity you complete and record online, you will earn points. Points are accumulated to earn prizes.

(Note: If you do not want to record your activities online, you can pick up a paper points tracker at the library and record points earned on the tracker.)

Caregivers, you can manage your children's activities from your account and log points of multiple family members at once.

As always, library staff are available to answer your questions and assist you as you take on the Summer Challenge.
