The ocean is full of mysteries. This summer, help us discover the greatest mystery of all – Atlantis! What happened to the island of Atlantis? Was it an ancient civilization wiped off the map by a super storm? Or is it just an ancient fairy tale? Join us this summer to seek the truth! All readers can register online, at home or at the library, beginning June 2nd and can start logging their books on June 25th.

The Wide World of YA: 2014 Teen Summer Reading Program

Where will you trek this summer?

atlas and globeAll teens in grades 6-12 are welcome to join our reading expedition. No registration is necessary. The program will run from July 1st-August 29th. Each book you read earns you the chance to win a prize of your choice.

This year we're adding something special...an interactive Google Map! When you stop by the Library to fill out your entry form you'll have the opportunity to pin markers on the settings of your books on our interactive Google Map. Throughout the summer you can view the map on our website, Twitter, and Facebook to see where everyone has travelled and what people are reading.

Our event calendar is loaded with teen programs throughout the entire summer. We have something for everyone: crafts, live baseball games, cooking, anime, fun with maps, theater, music, art, and more! View all upcoming teen events.

Those who are well read are well travelled! What are you waiting for? Get going on your Summer Reading Trek!!
