ReDiscover Your Library for Adults & Young Adults

Welcome to the Libray's Summer Reading Challenge - ReDiscover Your Library! Participants will need to complete a challenge listed below.  There are weekly prizes including books and gift cards for SHOP LaSalle and Amazon.  These challenges run from July 7th through August 6th.  When emailing challenge submissions, for drawings, please include your name, phone number and an email address. 


SHOP LaSalle Challenge

Shop or dine at a local LaSalle business that has a LaSalle address, either attach a copy of your receipt to an entry card or take a photo and email it to librarychallenge@lasalle.lib.il.us.

Does Not Fit Challenge

Check out the Library's displays, and see what item (s) doesn't fit with the theme of the case.  Take a photo and send it to librarychallenge@lasalle.lib.il.us.  This challenge does change.  Different displays will be changed at random.  How many can you find?

What Do They Have in Common? 

Check out two (2) DVDs from the Library's collection that share one commonality (genre, director, decade, etc.) and write a movie review.  Participants can hand in the review in-person or email it to librarychallenge@lasalle.lib.il.us. 

Who's Your Favorite Who?

Check out a biography or autobiography from the Library, and write a review, including book title, person's name, birthdate, and a fun fact about that person.  Participants can hand in the review in-person or email it to librarychallenge@lasalle.lib.il.us.

Young Adult Collection Only:  Read & Suggest a Graphic Novel/Manga

Participants can check out one of the Library's Graphic Novel and/or Manga books, read it, and give a suggestion for another graphic novel that the Library does not own.  If the suggestion is purchased, the participant will receieve a copy of the novel for their home collection. 


To win BINGO complete - all squares in a row, all squares in a column, or all corner squares.  When you have BINGO, stop in at the Adult Service Desk to fill out a card to be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing for a Kindle Fire.  There will be two drawings - one for adult and one for young adult.  Challenges to complete BINGO are listed below.
