Teen Summer Reading begins June 15. Haven’t participated in the Teen Summer Reading Program before? The Summer Reading Log program will continue through Aug. 31 and gives teens ages 13 to 18 the chance to win amazing prizes for every hour of reading they complete this summer.
To participate, pick up a Teen Reading Log from the library beginning June 15, fill it out, and turn it in at any library desk. You can also go to http://bit.ly/SRPlogs to submit your reading minutes online.
Weekly prize drawings will include gift cards, books, and other goodies, and if you are able to meet the challenge of reading 25 hours over the course of the program, your name will be entered in the grand prize drawing for a Kindle Fire HDX.
Along with reading logs, the library will host a heap of programs specifically for teens, including comic-themed crafts, a teen book club, creative writing club, and more.
