Activity Badges: To earn online activity badges, log in to your online summer reading account and click the Badges tab, and then the Activity Badges tab. Complete the challenges listed there to earn entries in the Teen End of Summer Reading Raffle Drawing.

Book Reviews: You can read and review any book from anywhere-it doesn’t have to be something that you’ve checked out of the library. You may include your required summer reading, or listening to an audiobook.
 
To enter a book review, log in to the Teen Summer Reading program and click the Badges tab. Then, select the Review Badges tab to write a book review. Write a thoughtful, substantive review: tell us about the book, what you liked, and what you didn’t like, questions you had, etc. Book reviews will be posted (anonymously) in the Teen Room as suggestions for other teens to read or not read!
