Teen Summer Reading

WFPL Teen Summer Reading Program

June 24-August 16, 2017

Reading Challenge
Challenge yourself to read this summer! Win stuff by keeping track of your reading in one of two ways, leveling up to win even bigger prizes along the way:
 
Method 1: Counting Pages
1st level: 200 pages
2nd level: 500 pages
3rd level: 1000 pages
 
Method 2: Counting Hours
1st level: 4 hours
2nd level: 8 hours
3rd level: 16 hours
 
Reading print books and ebooks, and listening to audiobooks all count as reading!
 
Prizes
No matter which tracking method you choose, here’s what you’ll get:
 
Level 1: 
Choose one prize from the grab box at the Teen department staff desk.
 
Level 2: 
Choose one prize and a raffle ticket that gives you a chance to win gift certificates*
 
Level 3: 
Select one book from our book vault and two raffle tickets that give you a chance to win gift certificates*
 
After you reach the third level you can get a new reading log and try to level up again. If you write book reviews you earn extra raffle tickets. Get a book review form at the Teen Services desk.
You can start tracking your reading by using logs we provide starting Saturday, June 24. The last day to turn in logs to the Teen department is Wednesday, August 16 at noon, the day we will having the prize drawings.
