Summer Quest 2022

It is important to keep youth reading and learning year round. Summer Quest at the Antigo Public Library provides books, activities, events, story time, challenges and more to keep youth ages 0-14 engaged all summer long.

This summer our theme is Oceans of Possibilities and we will have weekly activities both in-person and virtual, special events, and six different “Quests” (challenges) youth can complete.

At the bottom of this page you will find a downloadable version of our summer flyer with details about the six quests and more.

Ready to go on a Quest and earn free books?

Welcome to Oceans of Possibilities!

This summer we have 6 Quests children and youth can join to earn “book bucks” that can be used at our end of summer book fair. The book fair will offer books and other reading prizes that can be purchased with their book bucks. You can join these Quests either on our mobile app Beanstack OR by picking up Quest bookmarks from our display at the library. The bookmarks have all of the information you need to log and submit activities for that particular Quest. Our end of summer book fair will be held August 11-19 and will have a virtual option.
