Kids 10-18 have a summer of fun planned for them at the library!  Those entering Grades 5-12 are invited to sign up for our Tweens & Teens (T2) Reading Club.  They’ll get to choose from a special ‘big kid friendly’ list of prizes for completing their reading cards.  Prizes will include earbuds, books, glow necklaces, gift certificates, smoothie cups, and more! Our T2 readers are encouraged to choose their own books and read at their own pace during the summer.  They can turn in one reading card for the entire summer or one every day, but just like the younger kids, prizes are limited to one each week.

We also have a selection of events just for kids 10-18 years old.  They’re scheduled every Wednesday during Summer Reading with one exception the first week:
