Summer Reading for Teens (ages 12-18)

Teens, this year Summer Reading is all new and exciting! You will have the chance to explore different kinds of books and authors. When you sign up, you get a “Bingo Card” with different genres of books to read and various  library-related activities.  For each row you fill, you earn a prize. For this year’s grand prize drawings we will give away a Kindle Fire and a Nook Color! Summer Reading runs from June 1 to July 27. Prizes can be claimed through August 3, 2013.
