Summer Reading Program: Make Waves @ Your Library

IMake Waves at Your Libraryf you haven’t already signed up for the Teen Summer Reading Program now’s the time to do so!  The program is really easy to do and runs for the months of June and July.  This year’s theme is Make Waves @ Your Library.  In keeping with the theme we’ve come up with a bunch of great summer programs and events, all of which we will highlight over the next two days. 

First, we want to tell you all about the Teen Summer Reading Program:

So what is it?  Every summer we encourage teens to keep track of what they read in a summer reading log and then we give out prizes when they’re done.  Simple enough right?!

How do you sign up?  In order to sign up visit the Young Adult section at either DPL location, sign your name/email/school in the sign-up book, grab a log, and you’re set.

What do you have to do?  Once you’ve signed up and you have your log, you just keep track of the number of pages that you read–you get one point per every page read.  We also like to give the teens options so you can earn points in other ways, too–like attending library programs and/or volunteering.  All the details are laid out in the log and you can always ask if you have questions.

What do you get out of it?  When you reach 1,000 points you’re finished!  Don’t forget to turn your log in to claim your finishing prize.  This year we’re handing out free books.  Brand new copies of some of the hottest titles out there.  Serious.  Don’t miss your chance to get one.

Anything else?  Yeah, then you can enter into the drawings for the Grand Prizes!!  We’ve got lots of ‘em to choose from so it might be a tough call.
