Summer Reading

Sign up for the Teen Summer Reading Program today! Come in anytime during Teen Room summer hours (10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Mondays - Thursdays; 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Fridays & Saturdays) to sign up with a staff member and get your Summer Reading Pamphlet. Inside you will find a bingo board. For each square you complete, have a staff member sign off on it. For every 100 minutes read you'll receive a prize from the teen room. Every time you complete a row or column you'll get a ticket to use at our End-of-Summer Party on Friday, August 18th for a chance at additional prizes!
This summer the Adult and Teen readers are teaming up to take on the Children's Room to see who can read more books this summer. On the back of your pamphlet, keep track of which books you have read this summer. Keep in mind, if you help a younger sibling read one of their books that counts for you, too!
Keep an eye out for all of the programs open for Teens this summer here at the library!
