Participants can sign up online by clicking the Registration button and either download and print their Summer Activities List using the link below or pick up one at any public service desk in the Library.

After reading and completing activities, participants should return their Summer Activities List to the Reference Desk to receive a prize and be entered into the grand prize drawing for a Kindle Fire.
