Read, explore and create this summer to give your brain a boost every day.

The Adventure starts June 1. All ages are invited to participate in this free program. No Library card is required.

Stop by any Library location starting June 1 to get your Adventure Kit, which includes:

  • A Summer Adventure passport
  • A free book
  • A Coney Island coupon
  • A scratch card to reveal your first check-in prize

Use your passport as a guide to your Summer Adventure. Record your reading and other learning activities all summer long, and check in at the Library once per week to earn prizes. Each time you check in, you will get a stamp in your passport and a scratch card that will reveal your prize! At each weekly check in, you will also be entered for a chance to win the Grand Prize, four tickets to Coney Island! Winners will be chosen on August 1.

We recommend reading at least 20 minutes each day as part of your Summer Adventure. Each week also has a theme to serve as a guide for fun and engaging activities that encourage learning all summer.
