Tails & Tales Teen Summer Challenge (ages 10 - 18)
Take on the Summer Tails & Tails challenge! Dive into a fantasy world with your favorite animals, learn about new ones, and complete fun activities as you go. Log your reading and track your activity adventures to earn badges & prize drawing tickets. You will have the opportunity to win exciting prizes, such as a Kindle Fire tablet, Bluetooth headphones, and local gift certificates to some of your favorite Moab shops.
Each participant will win a coupon for a free donut from The Donut Shop and a limited edition Cosmo the Library Cat sticker just for signing up!
To complete the Challenge, you must log 9 hours of reading between June 1st and August 15th, write one short book review, and complete 5 of the suggested activities. Upon completion, you will receive a zipper pencil pouch filled with journaling supplies and sweet goodies!
You will track your progress online with our Beanstack Summer Challenge Website https://grandcountyutah.beanstack.org or by downloading the Beanstack Tracker app (starting June 1st) .
