Summer Game 2020: Away We GO!

Fri, 06/12/2020 - 9:59am by nicole

What a wild year. What a time to be alive! Thank goodness, summer's here. The sun is shining, the bugs are buggin', and that means the Summer Game is ON!

And it's not just ANY Summer Game. 2020 marks our TENTH YEAR of bringing you codes, badges, and MIND-BENDING PUZZLES of all kinds! 

Code-hunting and badge exploring has been tweaked to make it easier for players to keep a VERY fond distance, but there will still be TONS to do to earn yourself Summer Game points! 

Here are some ways to start playing the Summer Game RIGHT NOW:

-Start at the start of all Summer Game fun with our new-and-improved GETTING STARTED series! Earn NEW badges like the nearly-unpronouncable Points-o-Matic-o-Rama Badge.

-Go to each AADL location and collect a code! All FIVE branches have 1 big code on the banner outside the building! You'll only need this ONE code to get your Branch Explorer Badge this year, making it the EASIEST BRANCH EXPLORER BADGE IN SUMMER GAME HISTORY!

-Play any or all Points-o-Matic modes! Comb through catalog reviews in Review Reviewer; sort scattered series with the Series Serializer; or name some newspapers in News Sprinter! This truly ENDLESS fun is perfect for those who like to earn their points in WILDLY SMALL DOSES!

-Visit the AADL catalog to rate and review some things you like! You can write up to 10 reviews and rate up to 100 items each day!

-Read books, watch movies, listen to music, or download something cool from the catalog! Log your items for up to 50 points per day!

-Watch AADL TV to enjoy some socially-distant entertainment, and be on the lookout for ONLINE EVENT codes!

-Clear your schedule for a BADGE DROP at noon today, filled with BADGES (duh) and clues and hidden catalog codes!

In Mid-July you'll be able to spend your points on NEW 2020 PRIZES in our Summer Game Shop! Teens and kids who play the Summer Reading Game can also pick up their FREE PRIZE BOOKS when the shop opens. The Shop will be making some changes to PRIZES and PRIZE PICK-UP, so keep your eyes out for more info!

Our TENTH YEAR is just getting started, and we've got plenty more in store! So what are you waiting for??

Ready? Set?



I have a question. My apologies if this has already been answered elsewhere:

I still have my yard sign from last summer that says, "A Library Superfan Lives Here," with a summer game code on it. Is it okay to post it again this summer? Will the game code work?

Thanks, as always!

HI there, that code was intended mostly for the sign poster, not the sign see-er, and it's an expired code. But if you're interested in a code for your home..... well we've still got something new up our sleeves. Stay tuned!
