    From their website:

    PPLD’s Summer Adventure presented by Children’s Hospital Colorado is starting June 1! We have one game for ages 0-18. Participants will complete an activity (either Read, Imagine, or Move) any day in June and July to earn points. After earning 1500 points, participants will be entered into a drawing for a grand prize. Even though the program begins registration on June 1, participants will be able to obtain game cards starting next week. Game cards in both English and Spanish may be downloaded and printed at ppld.org/summer-adventure or may be picked up at PPLD libraries. Information about our curbside services at Library locations can be found at https://ppld.org/curbside.

    Besides Summer Adventure, PPLD will also offer weekly virtual programs this summer that can be viewed at tinyurl.com/YouTubePPLDchild. Another good resource is our Kids at Home webpage that gathers many virtual and screen-free ideas for kids this summer
