Teen Summer Reading Program 2017

Teens aged 12-18 are invited to participate in the Georgetown Public Library’s “Build a Better World” Reading Challenge during summer 2017.

It’s easy: keep track of your reading this summer and be entered to win one of four awesome gift baskets: Art Geek, Book Lover, Music Lover, or Random Awesomeness. 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 Reading Bingo sheet at the library, or print the one shown below. Each square you fill out will earn you one entry into the prize drawing. Come to the library to collect your tickets at teen events or from the Children’s Desk.

Fill out five squares in a row to earn an invitation to the exclusive Teen Summer Reading finale party, Late Night at the Library, on Friday, July 28 from 6 pm to midnight.

If you complete the entire card, continue to keep track of your reading to earn additional prize entries! Mark off one square on the back of the card for every 30 minutes that you spend reading after you’ve completed the front of the card.

The last day to collect your reading tickets will be Wednesday, July 26. The grand prize winners will be announced on July 28, 2017 at the Teen Summer Reading Finale.
