Welcome to the Great Burlington Badge Challenge!

 
Choose a badge and play for prizes! While you are staying home and social distancing, here are some fun challenges you can do inside. We're in this together, so don't forget to check back to see the library's progress!
 
Please keep in mind that results are updated once a day, so if you don't see your contribution, check back tomorrow! Have questions? Send an email to the Game Master!
 
Instructions: Pick one or more of the challenges from the list below that you want to do - whether it's reading a classic, trying an eAudio book, or recommending a book to the community, there is something for everyone! Each badge has 4 levels - the badge levels up when a set amount of people complete the task. When we work together, we win big! When the badge levels up, everyone who has done the task will receive a super-special digital prize! The higher the badge level, the bigger the prize, so invite your friends to help get those numbers up! Plus, every two weeks, we'll do a raffle drawing for one lucky player to win a gift card to a local business! We're in this together so play on!
