Teen Summer Reading Program

Teen Summer Reading Program

Current or incoming 7th-12th graders can participate in the Teen Summer Reading Program June 8 to July 27.

Register on Beanstack then stop by your local branch to pick up a prize paperback book of your choice (while supplies last!).

Submit book reviews to earn entries into our weekly prize drawings for $10 gift cards for movie tickets, Starbucks, Chipotle, or Salt & Straw. The more you read and review, the more chances to win!

Read at least 3 books over the summer to earn a fun goodie bag and an entry into our grand prize drawing for a $50 Fashion Island gift card!

We'll meet three times this summer to discuss what you've been reading, books you've loved in the past, and to do a fun bookish activity! Snacks provided. Registration required.
