Teen Programs

Summer Reading 2018

For the month of June, teens can enter our Bookmark Art Contest!

Once again, teens can make a bookmark based on our theme “Libraries Rock!”. Please turn in your work at the front desk of your branch by June 29th. Free templates will be available at the front desk, as well as markers and colored pencils if you wish to work inside the library. Please fill out our entry form when you submit your art work. Winning bookmarks will be printed and distributed throughout our libraries. The winner will also receive a gift card!

For the Month of July, try to guess the shredded book!

There will be a shredded book in a jar located at the front desk or teen area of each branch*. Take a look at the jar and read our clues to make your guess! Winners will be chosen raffle style to win a gift card!

*Please note: no brand new, perfectly good books were harmed for this contest! Damaged, donated, or old book covers only!
