         This program is open to students entering grades 7-12 in fall 2018.

There will be 2 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.

 You may register online at home on June 27th. This will set up your online account where you can log books you read and volunteer hours you served from any internet connection all summer. When you come into the library, you will receive your Teen Brochure with all the program details!
