Teen Summer Reading Program
We sponsor a popular Summer Reading Club division for teens. Participants read eight books by the end of the program and earn prizes for every two books read.
Teen VolunteersThe Summer Reading Program depends on teen volunteers in grades seven and up. Volunteers are asked to work two hours a week to help with the Summer Reading Club, read to children, keep books organized on the shelves, clean books, and perform other necessary tasks during their shifts. We have always been fortunate to have many enthusiastic teen volunteers during the summer.
