TEEN SUMMER READING CHALLENGES

This summer, teens are encouraged to challenge themselves to read more. A number of activities and challenges are offered; register now and start accumulating pages! Whenever you submit a book review (online or in person), you will earn coupons for the draws at the Book Launch Party (one coupon per one hundred pages read). Once you have registered, you can pick up an information kit at the Children Info Desk.

Books read for the following challenges can also count toward the Library’s Literary Bingo.
