Okey-dokey, here we go! Time for SUMMER GAME 2017!!!

Time for codes and badges and points and reading and exploring and all around LIBRARYING EVERY WHICH WAY YOU CAN! This year's Summer Game is HOT-HOT-HOT with more things to do than ever! Wondering how you can get going? How about:

-Visit every AADL location and collect the copious codes! Westgate, Malletts Creek, Pittsfield, and Traverwood all have 10 codes hidden around the building, Downtown has 15 codes PLUS every building has a BIG code on the banner outside (all banners are going up as we speak)!

-Head to the AADL catalog and get tagging, rating, and reviewing everything you can think of!

-Leave a comment on any post on (this one included)!

-Read books, watch movies, listen to music, anything at all! Remember, you get up to 1000 points a day for every minute/page you read, watch, or listen to! It all counts!

-Start getting started by starting with our GETTING STARTED series!

Let's do this! Do your best to top the leaderboard! Number one! Hoho!

(By the way, this post has at least 8 quotes from a certain video game hero. If you're looking for another place to start your Summer Game, try searching the catalog for the solo outing he has coming out later this year!)

Thanks for playing! Way to GO!


Most excellent! Can't wait to get started; this is one of the best parts about moving back to Ann Arbor!

Thank you for the best Summer Games program, I can't wait to see what badges you have come up with this year. I always learn new things by searching for answers to the clues. Fun, summer and learning in one game. You rock!


Nope, it's still a thing! I had a typo in my code. Thanks for the heads up!

So excited we can start earning points while we wait for the badges to drop!

Ann Arbor summer fest is a blast and art fair is butt.

Ann Arbor Library Summer game is THE reason to read this summer

YESSS YESSS YESSS! I WANT MORE BADGES!!!!!!! hope theres some interesting stuff on the shop this year!!!

also, friend codes of this family are:


First Badges! Love The Idea Of Motivating Kids To Read For Free Stuff! Keep It Up AADL!

Thanks once again to the awesome Summer Game staff team who put all this great stuff together!

Valerie - STEP967

Thanks librarians for making the summer game each summer! Glad to be here!

If Friend Codes are back, mine is LIVE979.

Yay! We love the summer library game at our house. I found codes at Westgate and Pittsfield earlier today. Woot!

And just when I thought adulthood after college was going to be dull, this arrives!

Awesome! So excited. Are school asked us if we are going to read this summer. Ha! Am I going to read. Let's do this thing!

Any chance that list making will be a badge again? I love making and reading other people's book lists - the more esoteric the topic, the better.

Any please - new t-shirts! i love all my old ones. Wear them proudly all over (even to other libraries). And buttons. Moar buttons.

Nothing like being a grown up and feeling just as excited as a five year old running around shouting "its time, its time, its time!!!"

Okay, ready go!!!

Don't forget to create a friend code and post it in the comments so we can add you.

LOL - this is TOTALLY how I've been feeling today!!! I've worked here even before the current version of the Summer Game began back in 2011 and I still am super excited for it to start every year! :) :) I LOVE playing. :)

My friend code: STEP967
My Mom's Code: DREAM734 (I'm trying to help her get points thru friend codes since she doesn't get a chance to play much!)

I never would've thought I'd have this much fun participating in a summer reading program! :D Thank you, AADL!!

Back for the summer, college is a pain. But I'm back for the 6th annual...this.
I still have 310000+ points in my bank, So I'm hoping for some good stuff here.

Meanwhile, perhaps some can add me, if we're still doing that.

We love the summer game! Thanks aadl for all you do! Keeps the family looking out for badges!
