Tastes for the Mind reading-promotion summer campaign for families with children 

Vantaa City Library arranges a Tastes for the Mind reading-promotion summer campaign that aims to encourage families with children to read and to use library services. Participate in the campaign by performing reading-related tasks as well as by participating in library-arranged events. 

For participating in the challenge, fetch a coloring form from your local library. As soon as you have completed one task, color the task-specific part in the coloring form. By returning your completed coloring form to your local library at the end of the summer, you and your family will participate in the lottery of prizes. The campaign tasks are low-threshold tasks whose aim is to encourage people to read together and be enraptured by the world of books. 

Complete the tasks together with your child/children at any library. The participating families can themselves choose the books to read and the time spent on completing the tasks.  The campaign begins on June 21 and ends on August 31.   

The tasks are the following:  

  1. We visited the library and began the reading challenge  

  1. We participated in a library-organized game/event/play, e.g., Tikkurila outdoor checkpoint track  

  1. We borrowed something we had never borrowed before, e.g., a book of poetry/a nonfiction book/a game   

  1. We asked the librarian for tips on books to read  

  1. We checked out the Path of Stories routes   

  1. We read a book together on a picnic  

  1. We watched an online fairytale hour, e.g., on Vantaa City Library's YouTube
