Teen Summer Reading Program
For those entering grades seven through twelve.
June 28th-July 31st, 2021
We're doing something new!
Welcome! Our summer reading program has two parts. The first part lets you keep track of what you are reading to collect beads to create your own keychain! You will receive a special, color-coordinated bead for each book that you log on READsquared that can be added to your summer reading keychain, as well as a raffle ticket towards our grand prizes. The second, optional part lets you take part in our reading challenge to win additional raffle tickets for our grand prizes.
Part 1: Just Read!
1 book=1 bead/1 raffle ticket
For every one (1) book, manga, or graphic novel that you read and log on READsquared, you will receive one (1) bead and one (1) raffle ticket.
Part 2: The Reading Challenge
Enter the reading challenge for a chance to earn extra tickets! For every two (2) books you read during the reading challenge, you will receive one (1) bonus ticket. If you complete all ten books on the challenge list, you will receive three (3) additional bonus tickets! Make sure you keep track! You can download the challenge list here. Please return your challenge log to the library to receive your bonus tickets!
You said something about prizes?
You will receive your first bead for your summer reading keychain just by signing up for the summer reading program. You can earn raffle tickets by logging your completed books on READsquared throughout the summer and participating in our Summer Reading Challenge. This year we will be raffling off five gift cards as our grand prizes!! *Please note, in order to be eligible for the raffle, you must read and log two (2) books on READsquared.*
