Activity Passports - We're excited to introduce a fun and engaging "passport" program that will take participants on a literary adventure that extends beyond the pages of a book. Each passport is filled with creative activities designed to enhance early literacy skills, encourage exploration, and inspire reading.

As you complete each activity in your passport, you'll earn a stamp. At the end of the Summer, we’ll add up everyone’s stamps. If we reach our goal of 6,000 stamps, we will plant five trees across five local parks near our library branches!

It's a fantastic way to give back to our community while diving into the joys of reading. Join us in making a greener Boise while enriching your reading experience this summer!

  • You can log your passports using a stamp, sticker, or coloring. You can also log your “stamps” in Beanstack as Activity Challenges.
  • Physical passports must be turned in by Friday, August 9th, to be counted towards the community goal.
