Who's the Club For?

The Teen Reading Club is for teens in Grades 6-12. Stop by any library branch to participate. If you're 18-years-old and a senior in high school, you may choose to be a part of either the Teen or Adult Reading Club, but not both.
What's the Club About?

Summer breaks are a time to rest, relax, and have fun, but we want to encourage you to keep reading. Those who participate in the club will have the chance to write down the titles you read, and the summer programs you attend, and turn in your tickets for a chance to enter Prize Drawings through the summer. The more you read and come out to programming, the more chances you have to win.
Where Can I Join?

All locations will provide access to reading club materials from June 5 through July 28. Stop by the circulation services desk to get yours, or you may even pick them up if attending our events. Information will be available throughout the length of the reading club.
