'Imagine Your Story' with Wheaton library reading challenge
The Wheaton Public Library invites readers, young and old, to participate in the 2020 Summer Reading Challenge: Imagine Your Story!
There are four reading programs this year: youth pre-readers, youth readers, teens, and adults.
The goal of each program is to earn 1,000 points to be entered into our grand prize drawings. Every 100 points earned enters you into a series of weekly drawings.
The Summer Reading Challenge is June 1-Aug. 1.
