Teens in grades 7-12 can participate in our teen summer reading program. The theme this year is superheroes. Throughout the summer, there will be superhero and comic themed programming specifically for teens such as DIY projects, trivia, and more. Teens will earn raffle tickets that they can submit to win various gift certificates and prizes, as well as chances to win comic books throughout the summer. They can earn extra tickets by doing bonus tasks such as taking a photo at the library and coming to programs.

Kick-off is Wednesday, June 17th at 4:00 PM with a pizza party! Come eat and get your materials for the summer reading program!
