Summer Reading by Andrea Lorenz

Posted to Campbell Unclassified on May 20, 2022 at 12:48 PM by Genesis Gaule

It is almost my favorite time of year: SUMMER READING PROGRAM SEASON!

You may be thinking, Summer Reading? What’s that all about? I read all year round. What’s so special about summer?

For Summer Reading Program, we invite children, teens, and adults to come to the library, participate in engaging, hands-on activities, and celebrate their reading!


Summer Reading Program 2022For kids who have completed grades kindergarten through 5th grade, there’s our traditional Summer Reading Program

Kids track the number of minutes they read and can receive weekly prizes. They’re also invited to come to a weekly activity where we experiment, learn and create! This year we’ll be sending rockets in the atmosphere, making paper sculptures, learning about plants and mammals of Minnesota and more! 

You can register your child for Summer Reading Program online or at pick up a form at the circulation desk.


RALF: Random Awesome Library FunFor teens and tweens (kids who have completed grades 6-12), we have RALF. RALF stands for Random, Awesome, Library Fun! Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunch and we’ll eat and play games, make crafts, and generally have a good time.

We’ll be meeting over the noon hour on Fridays in June and July. No registration required!


lazy riverFor us grown-ups, there’s the Lazy River Challenge where community members will compete with staff to get their innertube down the lazy river first. 

Pick up a reading tracker at the front desk in June and start tracking the number of minutes read (and the titles – we’ll be posting those throughout the challenge). Bring your tracker in whenever you’re at the library and we’ll stamp it and add your minutes and move your innertube down the lazy river. 

Can you out-read library staff? I’m not sure…


The best part of all of this? It’s FREE! Absolutely completely free. Check out the library’s website for more information, email Andrea at alorenz@egflibrary.org or call (218) 773-9121.
