Explore your world with our summer learning program, this year celebrating our Incredible Earth!

All ages are welcome to participate! Youth and teens can complete bookmark logs with reading and activity goals for rewards. Adults are invited to discover new books, movies, and music and attend programs for an entry prize and the chance to win our grand prize drawing.

The Westmont Scavenger Hunt is also a great opportunity for adventurous groups and solo sleuths alike to have fun while discovering our community’s parks, landmarks, and businesses.

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 kids’ and teens’ 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! If you read for all 14 days and finish every activity on the bookmark, you are eligible for a second prize.

There are four bookmark challenges to complete—one for every two weeks—so don’t miss out!

Adult Challenge

Read, Watch, Listen, Attend—and Review!

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

Pick up comment cards from Adult Services and write down your reviews of library items and experiences. You’ll get a prize for your first review—and an entry into the grand prize drawing for each additional comment you submit.
