Teen Summer Library Challenge 2019

Teens aged 12-18 are invited to participate in the Georgetown Public Library’s 2019 “A Universe of Stories” Teen Summer Library Challenge all summer long!

It’s easy: keep track of your reading this summer and be entered to win one of four awesome gift baskets: Artist, Bookworm, Gamer, or Otaku. The more you read, the more chances you’ll have to win! Reading materials include books, magazines, newspapers, graphic novels, manga, audio books, and e-books.

Pick up a Teen Summer Library Challenge log at the library, or print the one shown below. Color in a slice of the wheel for every thirty minutes that you read. Earn one entry into the prize drawing for every hour that you read. 1 hour = 2 slices = 1 ticket. Come to the library to collect your entry tickets at teen events or from the Children’s Desk.

Complete extra dares over the summer and earn more prize drawing entries! Fill out five squares in a row, and win a free book! For every five in a row after that, earn an extra prize drawing entry ticket.

The last day to collect your reading tickets will be Wednesday, July 24. The grand prize winners will be announced on July 26, 2019 at the Teen Summer Reading Finale.

Hogwarts House Cup Challenge

Which Hogwarts House can read the most? Choose your House when you pick up your Teen Summer Library Challenge log and read your House into victory! When you pick up your prize entry tickets, be sure to ask for the ones in your House color. The House with the most reading tickets will be declared the winner of this year’s GPL Hogwarts House Cup, which will be displayed in the Teen Space until next summer.

Teen Events

On Friday afternoons during June and July, teens are invited to the library for games, crafts, movies, hanging out, delicious snacks, and FUN.

The Teen Summer Library Challenge kicks off on Friday, June 7, at 3 pm with Life Size Sorry! and other board games, fried chicken (vegetarian options available), and an ice cream sundae bar. Enjoy the games and snacks, win prizes, hang out, and learn all about the Teen Summer Library Challenge.

Teen events will be held at 3 pm on Fridays, June 7 – July 26 in the upstairs meeting rooms. All activities are free and open to teens 12-18 years old. No registration is required for teen events.

Every program is super packed, so we can sadly no longer accommodate groups such as camps or youth programs.

Check the events calendar for more information on individual programs, or contact Teen Services Librarian Melissa Mote at or (512) 819-3132.
