Teen Summer Reading: Discover What’s Beneath the Surface

Whether you’re working on summer assignments or just feeding your need to read, our Teen Summer Reading program is sure to please.  This year’s theme is Beneath the Surface.  Set your reading goals.  Then, track your progress online and on our reading mural and earn prizes as you reach each new level.

In support of our reading program, we have scheduled plenty of fun and funky events.  Master the art of tie-dye, grow your own crystals to create a homemade geode, make a classic “cup-of-dirt” dessert, celebrate Harry Potter’s birthday, and attend a beach-less beach party!  We will also be hosting a variety of crafting workshops with local artists and two sessions of chess workshops with Render Cutts followed by a Chess Simul.  A full list of Teen Summer Reading programs is available at the library’s website on our Teen page.

Teens in grades 6-12 may register for our summer reading programs and activities at the Reference Desk, by phone at 908-322-5007 x 204, or via the library’s website http://www.scotlib.org. Registration begins June 17th.  Students can find required reading lists for SPFHS and Park and Terrill middle schools online at http://www.spfk12.org/page/69 and in the library’s Adult Room, where you can pick up copies of the books on the lists and many more!

Join fellow teens at Scotch Plains Public Library and discover something new this summer.
