Go ‘Beneath the Surface’ with library’s Teen Summer Challenge

This year, the Fairfield Public Library is going “Beneath the Surface” with teens in sixth through 12th grades for it’s Summer Challenge, which kicks off with parties at the main and Fairfield Woods branches on Wednesday, June 26, from 1 to 3 p.m. Students are invited to stop by to sign up for the challenge, play games, win prizes and eat pizza.

Participants complete activities under the challenge categories to earn points and badges, which will increase their chances of winning prizes. Teens may read, watch movies, eat food, make stuff, attend events and help out in the community, all the while earning points as they go.  In August, they will be able to cash in all of those points for raffle tickets to the prize drawing.

Prizes include a metal detector, a MeCam (a hands free, wearable video camera), autographed and advanced release books by authors such as Neal Shusterman, Wendy Mass, Holly Black, Cinda Williams Chima, Elizabeth Wein, Todd Strasser, Lemony Snicket and Jonathan Stroud.

Each week, the library will raffle off a $50 gift card based on who has entered an activity on their profile page (open to everyone participating). Gift cards will include iTunes, Starbucks, 16 Handles, Coldstone Creamery, Threadless, Think Geek and Gamestop.
