Saturday, June 2 – Saturday, July 28

Challenge yourself to try something new and explore the community with our summer learning program.

All ages are welcome to participate! Youth and teens can complete bookmark logs with reading and activity goals, “Read for a Cause,” and earn prizes. Adults are invited to discover new books, movies, and music and attend programs for entries into our monthly grand prize drawings.

The Westmont Scavenger Hunt is also a great opportunity for families to adventure together.

Youth Challenge

Complete bookmark logs

We have created bookmark logs for pre-readers, readers, and teens to encourage exploring and learning this summer. Earn incentives by reading or being read to for at least 20 minutes each day and completing activities. Whether it’s a physical book or an ebook, an audiobook or a graphic novel, all reading counts and helps keep your children’s skills sharp and active throughout the summer.

To participate, pick up a bookmark from the youth department and start reading! Each bookmark includes space to record two weeks of reading and activities. Read for 10 days and complete half of the activities on the back to complete the bookmark, then return to the library by the due date to claim your prize and receive your next challenge!

Ready to level up? Log 14 days of reading and complete all the activities on your bookmark to earn an entry into the grand prize drawing. There are four bookmark challenges to complete—one for every two weeks—so don’t miss out!

Read for a Cause

Read for a Cause to support Special Olympics Illinois and the Hinsdale Humane Society. Once you complete the challenges on your bookmark log—by reading at least 10 days and finishing at least half of the activities—the Westmont Rotary Club will generously make a donation in your name to one of these amazing organizations. Help us make a difference in our community!

Join the Westmont Scavenger Hunt

Explore the community as you embark on the Westmont Scavenger Hunt this June and July. Start your quest by visiting the Youth Services department to pick up a map, then follow clues to discover the hidden gems Westmont has to offer!

Adult Challenge

Read, Watch, Listen, Attend—and Review!

Hated the last movie you checked out? Couldn’t put down the newest thriller? Enjoyed learning how to sew at once of our programs? We want to hear about it!

Pick up a review card from Adult Services, then turn in your comment for a prize. Continue to review items and programs throughout the summer and you will be eligible for one of our monthly grand prizes.
