Teen Summer Reading Club

Monday, June 16th - Sunday, August 10th

Paws to Read Summer 2014

This year we will be celebrating our pets with Paws to Read! When you sign up at the Readers Advisory Desk, you will receive a bag filled with goodies. Slips for our drawing can be filled out for every book read, movie watched or CD that you listened to. You set the pace! The more that you participate, the more chances you have to win paperback books, graphic novels, frisbees or gift cards.

Don't miss out!
Join us for a summer of fun!

 

Audiobook Sync

This is the second summer that we are participating in the AudiobookSync program! In the Teen Scene, there are bookmarks and a poster with this year's titles. If you are new to AudioSync, it is a free program that offers two free downloads a week from May 15th until August 14th. One book is a classic and the other is a newer teen fiction book. You can also get alerts sent to your cellphone with reminders to download. The program is free to use. It's a great way to take books with you wherever you go this summer!
Details at the Readers Advisory Desk.
