Each week you will have a choice of 4 challenges. Choose your challenge and submit that you have completed it to earn prizes and get your name into drawings. You can choose just one challenge, or you can do more than one. The new week will be posted on Saturdays, but you can jump in at any time by starting with week 1. If you start late, you can catch up by submitting more than one week's challenge. Watch for the first set of challenges to be posted on June 4th. Don't worry, we'll start things off easy for those who are adjusting to the summer pace....
It's hard to believe that we've come to the end! We'd love to hear what you thought about the challenges, website, and prizes so that we can make it even better next year! Please take a few minutes and give us: Your Feedback! You can enter your comments on the "submissions" page and submit just as you did for the challenges.
It's time for prize level three. If you have completed at least one challenge for each of the 7 weeks, you qualify for prize level three. Just print the confirmation sheet and bring it into the library to receive your prize. The final day to receive prizes will be July 30th.
Also make plans to attend the Summer Reading Club Finale Pool Party. The Young Adult party (for ages 11-18) is Friday, July 22nd. We will also announce the winner of our Finale Prize drawing that evening.
This is the final week of challenges. Did you complete your reading list? Summer doesn't end with the end of Summer Reading Club, so go ahead and start another book and keep reading. Just let us know that you read for at least 2 1/2 hours and you'll complete the challenge. If you choose this as your option, just select "Read" as your challenge when you're in the "submissions" part of the site.
Watch a martial arts movie. What made you decide to watch that one? Had you seen it before? What did you think? You can find other suggestions on www.rottentomatoes.com. Choose the "Watch" challenge and submit your comments in the box on the "submissions" page of this site.
Create an audio version of a chapter of one of your favorite sports books. Or choose one of your favorite children's books to create an audio version. Then upload it from the "submissions" page of this site. Tell us the name of your book and anything interesting about creating the audio version in the comment box. Choose the "Listen" challenge on the "submissions" page of this site to make your submission.
Your final challenge is to create a photoshopped picture that promotes the Algona Public Library. A free photo editing site that you might try is http://ipiccy.com/. You have two options: 1. Use a photo (from the Public Domain, not one of yourself or any other minors under 18) and alter it so that it is suddenly an advertisement for the Algona Public Library. 2. Pop a picture of someone into a different, totally unexpected picture (again, this can't be a picture of you or anyone you know). Choose the "Do" challenge and then upload your picture on the "submissions" page of this site.
