CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE GAME BOARD FOR JULY.

The goal of SRC is to entertain you, not to overwhelm.  So, complete as many or as few of the activities and contests as you wish.

For the Adult Club we are not using READsquared for logging.  I apologize for that but I did not give Beth Smilack enough time to build the program on the software.  The Game Board is posted on our website to allow you to use the blue links.  Please utilize our new curbside service to pick-up materials as well as turn in. (You are welcome to register on ReadSquared so that we will have your info.)

GAME BOARD

Activities have different values:

     Yellow = 1 point    Purple = 2 points   Red = 3 points   Green = 4 points

Note:  The blue color is for Internet links.

DIGITAL ESCAPE ROOMS

As you complete a square X it out.  Most activities can be done at any time.  However, a few are a specific date so look over the game board, both sides. 

The object of points is to win prizes.  At the end of the Club you will total your points and receive tickets for the auction style awarding of prizes.  At the  party prizes will be laid out and there will be a bag with each.  You get to choose where to deposit the tickets you accumulated.  We will pull a ticket out of each bag for a winner.  We have a variety of prizes with the “best” being a JCBA gift certificate for $100.

CONTESTS

There are 4 contests.  The prize for each will be a $25 JCBA gift certificate.

DIG DEEP FOR A BETTER VOCABULARY:  This is a word-a-day activity.  Simply record a new word daily on the calendar sheet provided and turn it in at the circulation desk prior to the Party in July.  A winner will be drawn from the sheets turned in.

WHERE AM I READING:  A sheet in your bag has 10 pictures of library staff reading at locations in Jerseyville.  Use your investigating skills to figure out the locations.  Turn in your completed sheet prior to the Party for a chance to win.

DIG DEEP IN THE DIRT:  Enclosed in your bag is a packet of flower seeds.  Plant the seeds in a container you have at home and embellish as you please.   Show your planter some love for 6 weeks.   Turn in your flower pot prior to the Party.  We’ll have a U of I Master Gardner choose the winner.

THIS INVESTIGATION GETS PHYSICAL:  On a sheet enclosed you will find “clues” to help figure out a secret word.  Turn your completed sheet in prior to the Party.
