Summer Reading Program
Ages 12 – 18:  Teens can sign up at Youth Services to enter the Reading Race!  Each teen will be assigned to a team. Teens will keep track of how many pages they have read and turn in their "Page Logs" weekly.  Every page a Teen reads helps their team move forward on the race track.  The team that goes the farthest by the end of the Summer Reading Program WINS!  Every person on the winning team will receive a prize.  Teens will also have the opportunity to win weekly drawings by turning in their "Page Logs" every week.  Every log turned in enters that Teen into our weekly drawings
