Teen Summer Reading
We want you to have fun, win prizes, and of course, read at the library this summer! You’ll get tickets for playing Teen Bingo and attending Teen Events, and then you can place those tickets into a drawing of your choice for a chance to win a prize.
To mark a Bingo square, you can do a lot of things, like read a book, make a Flipgrid*, attend a library event, do some cooking, even take a long walk!
Want More Tickets? Or just don’t like Bingo?
You can also get tickets for the Summer Prizes by attending ANY teen event! Simply tell the library staff person you want a ticket when you are leaving the event and place it in the appropriate Summer Prize raffle box.
Teen Summer Reading runs from June 23rd through August 31st.
