Pikes Peak Library District (PPLD)s’ Summer Adventure program, presented by Children’s Hospital Colorado, kicks off Tuesday, June 1, for kids and teens from 0-18 years of age. The adventure has been extended two weeks this year, ending on Aug. 14.
This reading program encourages youth to stay engaged – read, move and imagine – by reading and joining the fun, interactive activities that are being offered this summer at PPLD. To participate, patrons can log on to ppld.org/summer-adventure or visit their local library to register and pick up the summer District Discovery magazine for all the details.
PPLD offers a wide variety of virtual programming on its PPLDTV YouTube channel, as well as virtual games, a Coding Camp, Cooking 101 classes, and STEM programs to inspire and stimulate minds.
Parents and their younger children can participate in the adventure by enjoying Baby & Me Yoga classes, Kids Take and Make kits, and virtual Storytime.
In a safe environment, live, in-person events also will be presented, such as outdoor movies, family concerts, indoor and outdoor Storytime, games like laser tag, and goats in a petting zoo at a few library locations.
As kids of all ages read and participate in activities, they will earn points. An accumulation of points will lead to prizes and, ultimately, entries into a drawing for a chance to win one of the age-appropriate grand prizes – a gift certificate to Kiwico crates for the kids or a Chromebook® for the teens. Multiple grand prizes will be awarded throughout the Library District.
