Track your super summer challenge activities

The universe is full of stories! With The City Library’s Super Summer Challenge, you can read a story, live a story, make a story, and tell your story. On this page, you’ll find all sorts of activities to complete, and you can win some stellar prizes along the way. See below for all the out-of-this world events the Library has planned this summer.

How to play

The challenge has three levels, and each has its own constellation card. When you complete an activity, fill in one star on the constellation. Once the constellation is full, turn it in at any City Library and collect a prize. If you complete all three constellation cards, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a Grand Prize basket. Be sure to submit your constellation cards by August 10!

You can also sign up and track your progress via Beanstack, or by downloading the Beanstack Tracker app:
