All Ages Summer Reading Challenge
Get ready to go to camp this summer with the Coos Bay Public Library's Summer Reading Challenge. Anyone's eligible to take part in the fun! This year's challenge is focused not only on reading (of course) but on getting outside and reading beyond the beaten path. Read, explore, earn badges, and enter to win a cool grand prize!
How It Works:
1. Sign up online or in-person at the Coos Bay Public Library. Get a free prize just for signing up.
2. Take a look at the badges and activities. Select one (or more) that you'd like to start working on.
