It’s time for the Teen Summer Reading Program!  Beginning May 29th and running through August 31st, YOU can earn prizes just for reading.  You can register in one of two ways: 1) by filling out the form below and downloading the reading log, or 2) come to the library (Main, Osage or Bookmobile) to pick up a log.  The rules are simple:  every ten hours of reading earns you a prize. Complete 40 hours of reading to become eligible for our Grand Prize drawings.  As you’re reading, select five books that you think are interesting and write book reviews for them.  You can even use our online form to submit your reviews! Finishing all five book reviews will earn you a bonus entry into the grand prize drawing.  While the book reviews are optional, you definitely want to be registered for Summer Reading so that you can attend our Lock-In on July 31st (6pm until midnight!).  You can’t get in if you aren’t registered!

But wait!  The Teen Summer Reading Club isn’t just about reading.  It’s about doing cool stuff too.  Be sure to check out our events calendar, because we’ve got some amazing stuff planned this summer.
