FINALLY! Summer is here, and we don't want to waste a second of it!! This year Kitchener Public Library wants all of our Tween friends to enjoy all things summer... and get rewarded for it!

Log how many minutes you spend reading, and for each minute, you will earn 1 point.

Complete the weekly missions (released every Monday & Wednesday) and you will gain 10 points for each one you complete!

At the end of the summer, you will be entered into a draw to win a fabulous prize pack, full of amazing and fun things! The more points you earn, the more chances you have to win!

The Tween Summer Challenge is available for those between the ages of 9-12.
