Summer Reading 2021


Summer Reading is back! This summer, tweens and teens entering grades 6-12 can read books and share reviews, earning a free book for each review shared. Sharing reviews also enters readers in for a prize drawing, with prizes including three gift cards and one grand prize: an Oculus Quest 2! The more you read and review, the more chances you have to win. Stop by the Teen Room to pick up a summer reading starter pack with bingo activities, bookmarks, and temporary tattoos.
