Adult Summer Reading Challenge

Explore the Shore: Adult Summer Reading Challenge

We're teaming up with the North Shore Culture Compass (a program by North Van Arts) to offer you a range of North Shore experiences. North Shore Culture Compass is organizing themed cultural and heritage treasure hunts on the North Shore, and NVDPL is offering you book and film lists based on those themes! 

While we're all staying closer to home, that doesn't mean we can't have a great time right here on the North Shore. Enjoy new experiences with books, films, and local places. You could even win one of six $50 gift certificates to 32 Books in Edgemont Village by participating! All you need to do is register to participate in the Adult Summer Reading Challenge and attend at least one summer Zoom discussion where you share your Explore the Shore experiences, and you'll be eligible for the prize draw. See below for more details. 

How do I participate? 

Complete any of three experiences (reading or listening to a book, watching a film, or going on a Treasure Hunt) and then register for one of our Zoom sessions to share those experiences.

You can choose any three experiences you like – for example: you could read three books, or you could read two books and go on one Treasure Hunt, or you could listen to an audio book, watch a film, and go on a Hunt. And of course, we encourage you to engage in as many experiences as you would like – we’d love to hear about your adventures in reading and learning! 

When you complete your three experiences and participate in at least one of the Explore the Shore Zoom discussions, you'll be entered in the draw for one of six $50 gift certificates for 32 Books in Edgemont Village!
