It’s June and you know what that means! Kids outta school! Summer vacays! Popsicles on hot days! Running through the sprinkler! Denim cutoffs! It definitely means all those things but June also means the kickoff of summer reading! To celebrate we’ve created a 30 day photo challenge for Instagram.**
Starting June 1 we’ll kick off our #BooksofSummer (does “Boys of Summer” play in anyone else’s head when we say that?) with our first challenge: Your Library.
If you’re unfamiliar with photo challenges, it’s simple! You post a picture each day of the month corresponding with the number and prompt in our challenge.
