Ledyard Public Libraries Teen Summer Reading     

June 20 – August 13

         This program is open to students entering grades 7-12 in fall 2016.

There will be 4 weekly prize winners and entries may be earned by reading a book or volunteering. You can volunteer in shifts at either library helping at the summer reading table, or with storytimes, cooking, or craft events for younger children.

All volunteers can receive a certificate documenting number of hours worked if needed.

Final prizes will be awarded for the most books read and the most volunteer hours accumulated during the summer.

Come to the library to register so we can set up your online account where you will log books read and volunteer hours from any internet connection all summer. You will also receive your Teen Brochure with all the program details!
