Book Reviews:
Start your summer reading after you get out of school on June 22nd. 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 Review Badges. 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!

Activity Badges:
To earn online activity badges, log in to your online summer reading account and click the Activities tab. Complete the challenges listed there to earn entries in the Teen End of Summer Reading Raffle Drawing.
Checkout to Win!
Every time you check out books this summer, you will recieve a Teen Summer Reading Scratch Ticket. 
Scratch the ticket to see what you've won, then come to the Reference Desk to pick up your prize. 
Every ticket is a winner, so come to the library and check out books to win!
Make It Thursdays
During the summer, the teen room will be transformed into a mini makerspace every Thursday from 2pm to 8pm.
This means that materials for 2 or 3 craft projects will be available in the teen room! Challenge cards with maker ideas will be provided, but feel free to make your own creations.
Busy on Thursdays?
You can still use the materials on the Teen Craft and Game Cart whenever you are in the library.
