Lift Off to Galaxy DCL!

You’re invited to soar into a great summer of reading, stargazing, and stellar summer activities.
We’ve suggested 900 minutes of reading as a worthy goal, but if this challenge is not right for you or your family, feel free to create your own challenge! You can increase or decrease the number of minutes or set a goal for the number of books or pages you want to read. You can also do the supplemental activities we suggest on the reading log. We aren’t set on you reading 900 minutes, we just want you to read and have fun while doing it!

Help us meet our community goal of 8 million minutes read!

Watch our rocket make its way through the galaxy and help us meet our goal. If we meet our goal, the Douglas County Libraries Foundation will donate $1,000 to the Douglas Land Conservancy, which works to protect open space from development in Douglas, Elbert and Jefferson Counties.
