Exciting free activities are planned, while area teens in grades 6 and up discover the wonders of the world that can be found between the pages of a book! Library programs and activities begin during the week of June 9, and continue through August 2. Teens are encouraged to read as many books as they can, and they will earn rewards based on the total number of hours they spend reading or the number of reading-related activities they complete. The reading activities may include watching a movie based on a book or attending a teen library program. Listening to audio books and reading magazines and newspapers may also be counted.
For the first ten activities completed, each teen will receive a mystery prize. The rewards continue with a reading trophy for the first 20 books read. Reading rewards can be redeemed beginning Monday, June 9. The last day to pick up awards is August 30.
The names of participants will be entered into a drawing for a $25-gift card that will be awarded to several lucky readers completing 20 activities or more, in a drawing scheduled in August at each library location.
