Teen Summer Reading 2021: Tails & Tales

 

June 11 – August 6

Once again, we will use Wandoo to keep track of books read during the summer.

For every 3 books read, teens get 1 entry into a drawing for the chance to win an awesome themed tote bag! Drawing will be held on August 9.

Totes are book, coffee, and art themed and will contain gift cards and other fun items.

teen SUMMER volunteer programs

Ages 13 – 17. We will have some in-person Teen Volunteer opportunities this summer. As our children’s programs are still virtual, the main tasks for volunteers will be shelving Children’s and Teen books.

Applications are available in the library or on the website.

If you are interested in virtual volunteer opportunities, book reviews are a great way to earn service hours!
