Teen Summer Reading

  • Teens in grades 7-12 keep track of their hours to earn a FREE young adult book.
  • Earn a raffle ticket for every 5 hours of reading. Raffle prizes include a $25 gift card and a $25 Hot Topic gift card. Tickets from those drawings will be combined for a Grand Prize drawing of $50 cash.
  • Art Contest: Participants may submit 1 entry in the form of visual art (i.e., a drawing, painting, photograph, sculpture or combination).  The submission should incorporate this year’s theme, “Build a Better World" and should be submitted with an entry form on or before July 21st.
  • Writing Contest: There are 2 rounds. Participants may submit 1 entry in Round 1 by June 30. The entry should be an outline or detailed summary of a novel, graphic novel, or short story. Judges will select entries to move forward into Round 2. Selected individuals should then submit a 10-20 page entry, either a selection from their novel or entire short story for Round 2 due on July 21st.
  • Writing entries must be submitted in person with a cover page available from the library front desk.
