This is #NotYourAverageLibrary
This is not your average library summer reading program.
This is the Summer Dare – summer learning at its finest.
The Summer Dare is designed for learners of all ages, with activities designed to encourage lifelong learning, interaction, and experiences in the library and beyond.
Read and Explore
Read as much as possible and explore the dares to stay active and engaged throughout the summer.
Use the Summer Dare Log to track your reading minutes or record them online. Take part in our amazing summer programs and check out more reading material—we dare you!
Complete the Program
Read 600 minutes between June 4 and July 30 to complete the Summer Dare.
Log in and submit your final reading minutes, or call us at (319) 261-7323 and our staff will assist you.
Once you’ve completed the program, visit the library and pick up a Friends of the Library free book coupon.
