Sign Up for Summer Quest: Kids, Tweens, and Teens!

Register for Summer Quest and get a black and white copy of a game board shaped like a music note. On the back of your game board, you will find categorized lists of activities. Each category has a different color. Check off each activity under each category as you complete it, and then use the colors for each category to color your music note.

Everyone who registers and takes a game board will get a prize bag at the end. Those who fill their whole music note will receive an additional prize. TURN IN YOUR GAME BOARD BY TUESDAY, JULY 31ST, TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE ADDITIONAL PRIZE!

There will be contests throughout the summer, so you'll have chances to win even more prizes! This year's theme for our Summer Programs is "Libraries Rock". We will have programs for all ages centered around music, art, science, building, and more. Pick up a calendar and register for programs when you sign up for Summer Quest and get your game board. You're able to register for Summer Quest and programs throughout the summer.
