West Caldwell Public Library Invites Teens to "Spark a Reaction" with the Kick-Off of Their Teen Summer Reading Program

West Caldwell Public Library is launching its 2014 Teen Summer Reading Program on Tuesday, June 23 with a special after-hours kick-off event for teens in grades 6-12. The event will run from 7:00 – 10:00 PM, two hours passed the Library’s official closing time at 8:00 PM. The library will be exclusively open to teens so they can get loud and get active with a library scavenger hunt, Minute to Win It-type physical challenges, and a cookie-decorating contest.

This year’s teen Summer Reading Program theme is “Spark a Reaction,” and teens are invited to come to the Library and read for a chance at prizes, as well as to take part in special events throughout the summer. The Summer Reading Program runs from June 23 - August 8.

Special events will include the after-hours kick-off party on June 23, a Beat the Heat game night in July, and an invite-only secret party in August where prizes for the reading contests will be awarded. In addition to winning prizes by meeting their reading goals, teens also have the chance to win prizes with a Guess the Book in a Jar contest, Facebook trivia challenges, a Find Beaker! Hunt, and an opportunity to submit book reviews.
