Summer Reading Challenge
This summer, we are encouraging people of all ages to read at least one hour a week, beginning June 1st. Join our statewide Summer Reading Challenge and earn prizes as you achieve set reading milestones. For every 60 minutes logged online weekly, you will receive a virtual badge and an entry to the lucky grand prize drawing for Four Round Trip Tickets to anywhere Alaska Airlines flies!
The Kailua-Kona Public Library has also partnered with the Hawaiʻi Keiki Museum to offer family passes to the museum for 3 lucky keiki winners who read at least 600 minutes by the end of the challenge!
