2022 Summer Quest 

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. Youth earn book bucks for quests completed. These book bucks can be used to purchase new books at our end of summer book fair August 11-19.
Quests can be completed on Beanstack OR with paper quest cards by picking up a Summer Quest folder at the library.  You can collect book bucks as you go OR save your completed quest cards in your folder and collect all rewards by August 12.

Early Learning Quest: Children ages 0-2. Complete 6 early learning activities with your child to earn two book bucks.


Creative Quest: Do our weekly Take and Make activity or another creative activity at home to earn one book buck. This quest can be completed once per week all summer long.


Library Quest: Visit the library 5 times to earn one book buck. This quest can be repeated all summer long.


Ocean Quest: Complete 5 ocean-learning activities to earn 5 book bucks. This quest can only be done once. The quest can be one with a paper quest card, but you MUST register for the quest on Beanstack in order to receive the activity bag. The link to the breakout game you must solve to complete the quest is here.


Page Turner Adventure Quest: Visit our Page Turner Adventure Site each week from June 13 – July 8 and watch at least 3 videos for that week. One of the videos must be the author spotlight. Read one book by that author and solve the Breakout game for that week. Earn 3 book bucks for each week you complete these activities. The password for the Page Turner site is summer.
