How Does the Teen Summer Reading Program Work?

Teens ages 13-18 read books between June 23, 2014 and August 15, 2014 to earn prizes. You can register and log all your reading right from the comfort of your own home (or wherever you get connected to the Internet). After you read a book, log the number of pages you read on the online log. Once you get to a certain number of pages, you'll receive a prize!

What Can I Read? 

WHATEVER YOU WANT! Mystery, Sci-Fi, required reading - anything. These books should be "new to you" - no fair counting books you've already read! We also accept unabridged audio books and graphic novels. NO magazines or children's picture books, please. If you have a question about what is acceptable, just ask!

How Do I Sign Up?

Sign up is super easy. Registration begins on June 23rd, 2014 and the program ends on August 15th, 2014. All logs must be completed by this date to be eligible for prizes. Beginning on June 23rd, 2014, you can sign up for the Summer Reading program at any library branch using this form.

What Prizes* Can I Earn?

  

200 Pages - A Color Change Eraser, a Bookmark, a Temporary Mustache Finger Tattoo, and a Mini Button!

600 Pages - A Puzzle Ball and Emoticon Bracelet!

800 Pages - A set of Ear Buds and a Coupon for $2.00 off of your overdue fines!

1,000 Pages - Library Backpack and an Ear Bud Splitter!

1,200 Pages - A Free Book of your choice from our book cart AND an entry form for a chance to win a Kindle Fire!!! 

 

What If I Read More Than 1,200 Pages?

That's great! For every page bracket you reach after 1,200 pages, you'll receive another entry for the Kindle Fire! When you get to the final bracket, you'll get another free book too!

 

*Prizes are available at the Court House Branch. At a different branch? No problem! Just contact Amanda or Laura at 609-463-6357 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
