  • PICK UP a lanyard and a button or sticker at the library's Summer Desk. Lanyards, buttons and stickers are also available at the HPL Express at Uptown Janesville and on the HPL Bookmobile.

  • COMPLETE BADGES  by reading, attending a library program, or completing other fun activities. You can complete up to three badges each week.

    Kids: Stop by the Prize Desk in the Children's Room to choose a prize from our treasure chest after earning your first weekly badge. Kids will be entered into mid-summer and end-of-summer prize drawings upon completion of badges 2 and 3. Prizes available while supplies last.
    Teens & Adults: Each badge completed automatically enters you into a weekly prize drawing. All prize drawing winners will be announced on Facebook and notified via email.

  • PICK UP a new button or sticker on July 1 and August 1. Stop at the library's Summer Desk, HPL Express at Uptown Janesville, or visit the HPL Bookmobile.

  • EARN a free book at the end of the Summer Library Challenge. Books for all ages will be available to pick up at the library's Summer Desk from August 1-19.

Grab a blank sheet and use your creativity to draw a piece of art to add to our "oceans" throughout the library.

Complete as many sheets as you'd like. Return your completed sheet(s) to the box at the Summer Desk. Then explore our expanding Oceans of Possibilities around the library throughout the summer.

This project was brought to you by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services grant LS-00-19-0050-19.
