Libraries Rock! Teen Summer Reading Club 2018

Summer is coming. That means that it is time to get excited about Teen Summer Reading Club. If haven’t seen me or Shelby at your school yet or you lost our handy-dandy Teen Summer Reading Club handout, I will give you the low down.

How It Works

Teen Summer Reading Club starts on June 1st and ends on August 1st. During this time, every book you log earns you a prize ticket. You can then choose one of ten prize boxes to put your ticket into. At the end of the summer, we draw a winner from each prize box.

The cool thing is you don’t have to just stick to novels. You can log graphic novels, audio books, magazines, and ebooks. Regardless, the more you read, the better your chances are to win one of the awesome prizes mentioned below. Plus when you log 5 books, you automatically get to choose a prize book to keep and a Sky Zone Fishers bookmark that serves as a thirty minute free jump pass.

Programs

Also during Summer Reading Club, the library is hopping with activities and programs for you. So come down some afternoon and join us to watch Into the Woods, or make guitar picks, or play Rock Band on the big screen. We will also be hosting our Lock-in this summer, where you can stay in the library after hours to watch a movie, eat some pizza, and hang out. To wrap up this crazy summer of fun, we will also be throwing a Color Party in July. We will be playing dodge-ball and color war using colored powder. It should be a messy fun time.

As if you needed more of a reason to come, you can win stuff for attending programs. At the end of each program, all participants will be given a Teen Summer Reading Club Scratch-off. You could win some candy, an extra prize slip, or an extra prize book.

Volunteering

Do you need volunteer hours or would like to help younger kids maintain their reading skills over the summer? If you thought “Ummm…Yeah,” you should sign up to be a Teen Volunteer for Teens Read the Way.

Every Thursday for 6 weeks, you can volunteer to be paired up with a Reading Buddy (age 3 to grade 5). For half of the time, you will sit with them and read books in the Children’s Room. (Pssstttt…. once you read 10 children’s books you can log that as one teen book! Just enter the title as “10 children’s books“) The second half you will be having fun with these kiddos doing activities like decorating guitars, going on a scavenger hunt, and making spin drums.

To thank you for your hard work throughout the summer, we throw a pizza party just for our Teen Volunteers. We watch a movie and hand out your Volunteer Letter that is your proof of the service you did this summer.
