2016 Summer Reading Program


Read and review books this summer to win great prizes!

How It Works:

This summer, starting May 16th, record 10 hours of reading using the link on the teen blog to win a coupon book, a book bag, and a free book! Record your book's title, author, how long it took you to read, and a short review in order to submit it. 

The grand prize is an iPad Mini 2 and will be awarded to the teen who records the most hours read over the summer. 

With every book you submit, you can also enter into one of three prize baskets! These baskets are "Movie Night", "Heart for Art", and "Board Game Bash." Each time you enter a book, you will have the option to select which basket you wish to put your name in. At the end of the summer on July 30th a winner will be drawn for each basket.
