The big Finale for our Summer Reading Club will be held on Friday, July 18th. We will be celebrating with a pool party at the Algona Aquatic Center. The fun goes from 8:00 - 9:30 pm. A final prize drawing will be held at that time. Anyone who has completed level one will be included in a drawing for 2 passes to the WOW Zone in Mankato, MN.
Week 7: Finishing up!
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 ½ 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 show in a foreign language with subtitles. There are lots of choices on the internet for foreign television shows, or you can watch a familiar movie and set your player language to a setting other than English. Then choose the “Watch” challenge and tells us what you watched and what it was like to watch in a foreign language in the comments box on the “submissions” page of this site.
Check out Neibors from the online resources tab on the library website. Download an audio book for a final week of listening fun. Choose the “Listen” challenge on the “submissions” page and then in the comments box, tell us what you listened to and if you would recommend the book to someone else.
Your final challenge is to create a photoshopped picture that promotes the Algona Public Library. 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.
