Reading Colors Your World: Summer Reading Challenge

What is the Summer Reading Challenge?

The Council Bluffs Public Library challenges kids and teens from 0-18 to make reading and other literacy and library-related activities a part of your summer. Track the activities you complete, earn badges, and win prizes! There is a program available for kids 5 and under, kids in grades K-6, and teens in grades 6-12.

Our Summer Reading Challenge at the Library is designed to inspire free choice in reading and encourage kids and families to have a little extra fun with reading all summer long.
