Teen Summer Reading 2019

Welcome to Summer reading! Each week, keep track of the amount of time you spent reading each week on your reading tracking form to be eligible to win prizes! For every 7 hours that you spend reading, you will be sent a ticket in your e-mail to be used for prize drawings throughout the summer.

Once a week, or as you are able, bring your reading tracking form to the Information Desk to check-in. If you need more copies of the reading tracking form, you can pick it up at the Information Desk or download it here.

Each week will begin on Sunday and run through the following Saturday and you may check in anytime during the week to turn in your reading tracking form. However, participants will only receive one small item or book per week.
