Teen Summer Reading Program
June 25, 2014
We're halfway through our Teen Summer Reading Program, and things are going great! The prizes this year are pretty awesome. I'm jealous of all the fantastic books you guys can win. Did you know you are eligible to win up to 12 books over the summer? By earning up to 25 Teen Bucks, that adds up fast. Don't forget that every review you write gets you another chance to win that Kindle Fire HDX. We're so excited to be giving away 31 this year. That's more than we've ever given away before, so your chances are better than ever!
Just a refresher on the details in case you aren't already signed up: you can participate if you are going into 6th grade this fall, all the way up to 20 years old. Sign up at a branch or online using a library card. If your card is blocked from fines, that's okay! (But come talk to us about it, we'd love to try and help you get that figured out!) Your PIN should be your eight-digit birthdate (two for the month, two for the day, four for the year). Make sure you hit the "Sign Me Up" button the first time.
After that, for each book you read (please read books on your level, that means no Dr. Seuss!), just write a really quick 25 word review. Tell us your favorite part, who your favorite character was, or what you didn't like about the book. We just want to know that you read it! After that, you are eligible for a Teen Buck. One Teen Buck gets you a dollar's worth of free printing or copying, a free replacement Access Pass (library card), or a dollar off your fines. Two Teen Bucks will get you a free book. Like I said before, you can get up to 25 Teen Bucks over the summer!
The program runs until July 31st, and you can pick up your prizes until August 2nd. If you want to hold on to your Teen Bucks to use throughout the year, they are good for printing, replacement cards, and paying fines until the end of 2014. If you have any questions, just call your branch and they should be able to help. Books are first come, first served, so make sure you come in early to get the title you want.
We also have great programs going on all summer to keep you from the dreaded summer boredom! Check out our Cover It Up: Book Cover Art Contest and our Divergent FanFiction Contest. Stop by and say hi. We get lonely without you. ;)
