Summer

Summer Reading Program 2020
June 15 - August 31

Join a new virtual program for logging reading, earning coupons and books, and winning grand prizes!
Starting June 15, create an account at veronapubliclibrary.beanstack.org and/or get the Beanstack Tracker app. Contact the library if you would like a paper log instead. Here are more detailed instructions about how to register and log your reading and activities.

Teens (Ages 12 - 18)

Track the time you read this summer.
4 hours = Grand prize entry
8 hours = Free book (we'll let you know when pickup is available)
12 hours = Grand prize entry
16 hours = Finished! Coupons and free book

Keep going and earn more books when you've done 24 and 32 hours of reading! Plus there are fun activities to do - each one earns a ticket for a chance to win a grand prize. Grand prizes include a camping hammock with tree straps, an Amazon gift card, Bluetooth headphones, a professional marker set, and a Nintendo Switch Lite. There are also free virtual events over the summer, like gaming, crafts, and escape rooms. To see all of our events, visit our calendar.

Here is the flyer shared with Verona Area School District teens (also available in Spanish)

Summer Challenges

Enter and you could win a gift card to a local business! Submit your creations through the form on this page.

Challenge #1: Salty Poetry (6/15 - 6/28)

This challenge is complete.

Challenge #2: Nature Art (6/22 - 7/5)

Create a piece of art out of natural objects (leaves, sticks, stones, bark, etc.) and take a picture of what you made. You can either lay the objects in a temporary way to create your art, or you can make something more permanent. It's up to you!

Challenge #3: Game Shot (6/29 - 7/12)

Recreate a scene from one of your favorite video games. Nothing inappropriate, please. Be aware of your surroundings and prop choices (as in, be careful of using realistic-looking play weapons outside if those appear in your shot). If you don't have enough people from your household to reenact your scene, feel free to use figurines, objects, or drawings. Get creative and submit your photo below!
