Summer Adventure Program

We did it! This year you joined us for adventures on our first ever, virtual Summer Adventure Program.

In line with the theme this summer — Imagine Your Story — we offered five literary-themed challenges across age groups, giving everyone a chance to win incredible prizes like gift cards to local small businesses for adults, a camera tripod and free drinks to Human Bean for the teens, slime and putty kits for kids, and a cardboard castle fort for our littlest participants.

We also offered a summer full of fairy-tale and story-themed programs. Maybe you joined Miss Andrea for storytime when she read the story of The Three Little Pigs and then did The Three Little Pigs Challenge. Perhaps you joined Chelsey during Getting Crafty when she made Whipple Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight Chocolate Bars from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and then completed the challenge where you have to recreate a recipe from a book! Or maybe you were present for the adult program Colorado Folktales by the Spellbinders. Whatever you showed up for, we hope you enjoyed a summer inspired by stories, fairy tales, folklore, and mythology.

In total, we saw 873 participants register for Summer Adventure Program this year. We also saw more than 330 of your creative, inspiring, and entertaining submissions. With each challenge, we were witness to our community growing closer together with the challenges becoming a family affair. Ultimately, that’s our goal with Summer Adventure Program — to ignite the love of reading in all ages while bringing us closer together.
