Scotch Plains and Fanwood teens, entering grades 6 through 12, are invited to "Make Waves" this summer at Scotch Plains Public Library. Teens will earn prizes for every 5 hours of reading completed, with a prize raffle to be held at the end of the summer for teens who have read more than 20 hours.

Several summer-long series of programs will be offered, including two book clubs, art programs with local artist Connie Pinkowski, crafts with our librarians, fun science experiments with Anthony Arno, Saturday movie marathons, and Wii every Wednesday afternoon. A host of special events are also on the agenda, including presentations by Rutgers University marine scientists, the New Jersey Academy for Aquatic Sciences, a boat building program, and a treasure hunt.
