Teens who participate in the Summer Reading Program can earn one scratch-off ticket per day just by checking out items from the library, and you can earn extra tickets for attending library programs and for each entry on your reading log. Not only will you have the chance to win a prize every time you scratch off a ticket, but each ticket also enters you into a raffle for one of five Grand Prizes, including a $50 Amazon card! Teens ages 10-18 can register and pick up their reading log at the Children's, Teen, or Reference Desk. 

We have at least one program per week for teens during the summer (including an Ice Cream Sundae Bar , Tropical Art Night, Beach & Brunch Book Club, and a Mini-Food Challenge!), so please see our calendar for details!
