2021 Summer Quest will run June 13-August 7.  Our theme this year is TAILS & TALES™. Summer Quest (previously known as Summer Reading) provides readers of all ages the opportunity to experience everything the library has to offer through leisure reading, free programs, and participation in a variety of activities.  You don’t need a library card to participate, but you do need one to borrow materials. Register for a card online here.

We would like to thank our sponsors -- Friends of the Parkland Community Library -- for their continued support of the library and literacy initiatives.

Summer Reading with READsquared

We invite you to join us on READsquared to keep track of your summertime reading, listening, and viewing. This easy to use program will help you log reading hours, listening, and viewing. You can track your progress to earn badges and win prizes. Visit our READsquared site to get started. 

*Note: Participants may register/create an account before SummerQuest officially begins but will not yet be able to log reading, etc. until June 13.

Kids and Teens

The Youth Services department Summer Quest consists of three age groups: Tots (preschoolers age 2-5), Kids (ages 6-10), and Teens (ages 11-18).  Children who are too young to read independently may have books read to them.

How can I participate?

Go virtual with the easy-to-use READsquared website. Use the website or download the FREE app for Android or Apple devices. Log your reading and complete missions to earn points and chances to win prizes.

-OR-

Pick up a SummerQuest activity log at the Children’s desk if you prefer a screen-free option. 

While spending time reading is the main way for participants to complete Summer Quest, activities and program attendance also count towards your goal.  The last day to log reading activity and complete activity missions is August 7, and the last day to pick up earned prizes is August 14.

What are the prizes?

Tots and Kids will earn a raffle ticket for each hour spent reading.  Teens will also earn raffle tickets for reading, completing activities, and participating in events.  Each raffle ticket is a chance to win a themed prize basket and/or gift cards to local businesses.  Complete your Quest and earn a free book.

What programs will be offered this summer?

Most programs will continue to be virtual; pre-registration is required for most in-person and virtual programs. Take & Make craft and STEM kits for all ages will also continue to be available throughout the summer.  Check out our website and Facebook for event updates.

Adults ages 18 and up

PCL’s Summer Reading program is making a big splash with READsquared! Download the app or register online.
