Summer reading programs begin June 1 at library
Teens joining the program will play “Book Club Bingo.” And there are lots of ways teens can complete the program - reading books and graphic novels, attending library programs, listening to audio books, reading blogs, visiting the Library Teen MySpace page, and writing book reviews for the “Teen Newsletter” - just to name a few.
Bingo cards for participating teens will be kept on file at each branch. Teens may call or visit any library location to request their cards be stamped as they complete activities. Teens complete in “Book Club Bingo” by filling at least two of any combination of rows, columns or diagonals on their bingo cards with stamps. A medal will be available to participants who complete the program beginning June 15.
Events for teens this summer include Comic Book Workshops and the Get Graphic! Collaborative Comic Book Project, Hip-Hop Dance Lessons, Belly Dancing Workshops, Club Anime meetings, Candy Sushi making, Runescape Tournaments, Movies, Homemade Bottle Rockets, Andes Climbing Walls, Edible Wetlands Adventure, Pharaoh's Curse Mystery Game, Bicycle Safety Program, Outdoor Game Daze, Pictionary Challenge, and Wii Tournaments.
