Summer Reading Check-In

How’s your summer reading going? Are you almost done with your reading goal? Did you get caught up with doing summery things and forget about it? Well, it’s not too late to finish up and get your prize book. There are two and a half weeks left in the Summer Library Program, so I urge you to get those minutes/chapters/books done! We have a lot of awesome prize books to choose from, and I would love to give them all away to teens that have completed their reading. We’ve got fantasy, mystery, science fiction, you name it. Remember those #summergoals!

If you’re not done with your reading goal, are you at least halfway? Don’t forget to enter the Teen Prize Raffle! You could win a Kindle Fire, a BAM giftcard, a Bluetooth speaker, and more!

Oh, and have you done any Teen Bonus Activities? These suckers earn extra entries into the Teen Prize Raffle. Write a little something, record a book recommendation, or submit a piece of art for our Fall Art Show and you’re gold!

August 15 is the deadline to get EVERYTHING done (reading, activities, raffle entries).

Good luck on finishing up your reading goals, and may the odds be ever in your favor!

P.S. Do you need a book recommendation? Youth Services staff LOVE to give suggestions. Send us an email at with the information below and we’d be happy to put together a bundle of 5-10 books or email you possible titles.
