We’re challenging all participants to help us reach 700,000 MINUTES of reading this summer! Every minute that you log will help us toward this goal. If we reach 700,000 minutes by August 2, we’ll have a special party on Monday, August 5 from 4-6 p.m. Visit our SLC page for updates on total minutes read, as well as a list of our weekly prize winners!


Total minutes read as of June 23: 180,171


Join us in our “Share Your Adventures” activity. Stop at the library, grab a sheet of paper, and draw your adventure. The adventure you draw could be an adventure in a book, one you’ve had in Janesville, an adventure you would like to have - or anything you can imagine. Bring your drawing back to the library so we can post it on our wall of adventures! Check back often to see the fun experiences people share all summer long!
