MCL Nature Quest (Summer Reading 2021)

Nature Quest 2021 Challenge: Begin with Roots


Each and every one of us is embedded in a distinguished set of roots that connect us with our beliefs, culture, ancestral lineage, community, and the natural world around us. But how can we heal and strengthen those roots without consciously understanding who we are or where our roots are tied to? Being just one fragment in this natural world, it is critical to discover the elements of our roots that make us both unique and interconnected as a whole.

This year's summer reading destination? The world! Immerse yourself in tales from around the world as you explore culture, history, and enthralling stories around the continents in this 7 week program. This year's program may be completed through taking on reading challenges, trying new exciting activities, and participating in library programming. Points earned by children through the program can be used to redeem either tokens or raffle tickets. Children earn points based on minutes read and adults and teens based on books read. Adults and teens are eligible for raffle tickets. Raffle ticket amounts will be calculated at the end of the summer, before the raffle drawings on September 3rd. Winners will be contacted via phone and email. 

You can register today by visiting ReadSquared and signing up for our year-long Nature Quest program (Our summer reading program is only accessible online by registering for our year-long program). Nature Quest is a year-long program encouraging patrons to discover and nurture their “roots” through a variety of exciting missions and reading challenges - So the fun doesn't have to end after summer reading is over!
