Sign Up for Summer Reading Today!

When I say Summer Reading, what does that conjure up in your mind?  School lists and requirements?  Being forced to read when you’re sick of school? 

Well, Summer Reading at the library isn’t about any of that!  We’ve got tons of prizes, events just for teens, and did I mention prizes galore?  We’re all about rewarding you for doing what you’re doing anyway – reading! 

This summer, you’ll get a candy bar just for signing up, coupons for money off your fines for reading 5 hours, a new, free book for reading 10 hours and a $5 Borders gift card for reading 20 hours. 

That’s all in addition to our grand prizes!  For every hour you read between now and July 20, you’ll get a chance to win a gift card for iTunes, Target, Blick Art Materials, Graham Crackers Comics, GameStop and more.  Sign-up starts today, so be sure and drop by asap to start getting credit for what you’re reading.

This year’s theme is “Teens Going Green,” and there are plenty of events lined up for anyone going into grades 7-12.  I’ve planned movies, DIY projects and other special programs: the return of Manga Mania featuring Death Note the live action movie; an acting and improv class with acting teacher Amelia Barrett; a basic gardening workshop where you’ll pot a plant to take home; and a wilderness survival expert who’ll teach you how to handle the unexpected.  Most teen events require you to register, so don’t forget! 

If you already know what programs you want to go to, register now using the library’s online calendar of events.  Programs for teens are listed in green, and if the event requires registration, it will be underlined.
