June 5 - August 13

  • The Teen Summer Reading Club is for students entering Grades 6-12. 

  • Beginning June 5th, pick up your Summer Reading Record in the Teen Zone or Children's Department.

  • Try to read every day for at least 60 minutes from June 5th to August 13th.

  • On your Reading Record, cross off one square for every day that you read or listen to books for at least 60 minutes, or complete one of the suggested activities.

  • If you don't care to complete one of the activities, you can read for at least 60 minutes and cross off that square.
