BPL Teen Summer Challenge


It’s no secret that we’re living in a weird time. Our regular routine is out the window and while that is hard, this is also the perfect moment to reflect and try new things. Just like so many of you, Burlington Public Library is doing things a bit differently this summer.

CREATE, DISCOVER, AND REFLECT: 10 WAYS TO BEAT BOREDOM ALL SUMMER LONG

Summer Reading Packet

In this guide you’ll find 10 challenges that will keep you thinking and creating this summer around the theme, “Imagine your story.” Challenges can be done in any order, at any time throughout the summer. Some materials you will need are included, but you will also need some regular household items.
