Take The Summer Reading Challenge

Post Date:06/12/2020 5:39 PM
LOMPOC, CA, June 12, 2020 – The Lompoc Public Library System is pleased to offer a virtual summer reading challenge, and invites the community to come along on a “Book-cation.”

The program will run June 15 through August 31, and is facilitated through Beanstack reading challenge software thanks to support from the California State Library.

Participants of all ages are invited to participate in the “Book-cation” themed summer reading challenge. Sign-up can be completed at, or by using the Beanstack app on your mobile device and searching for Lompoc Public Library. The library invites those without internet access to call Lompoc Library staff at 805-875-8781, and staff will assist with logging reading.

The Lompoc Library challenges the community to collectively read 5,000 books this summer.
Lompoc Library Director Sarah Bleyl said that although library facilities remain closed, staff continues to connect with the community through a variety of library services and programs, including virtual story times and the summer reading challenge.

“This year’s summer reading program at the Lompoc Library will be different than in the past. We will miss having in-person sign-ups for the summer reading challenge and seeing all of the smiling faces at our summer activities. But reading is as important and wonderful as ever, and we know our community can rise to the challenge of coming together to read 5,000 books.”

Summer reading challenges participants are asked to submit book reviews in a form of their choice, including text, poem, photo, drawing, or emoticon. Each book review submission provides an entry into the library’s grand prize drawing, taking place on August 31. The grand prize will be a Kindle Fire tablet, and one grand-prize winner will be selected for each age group, including “Early Learners” up to 5, children ages 6 to 11, teens ages 12 to 17, and adults 18 and older.
