You will not be mailed anything but you can check out eBooks or eAudiobooks on the Libby or Hoopla app or download here. Once you complete five activities, fill out this completion form. If you know you are ready to do the Book Loot or STEAM Kit activities, you can request one of those for round 2.

  2. Redesign the cover
  3. Draw a character from the book
  4. Write a poem or short story based on the opening line
  5. Write or record a short book review

Taking pics of your completed projects will count as the required five activities. You can also participate in the daily Instagram/Facebook activities to count toward completed activities.
