Summer Reading Summer Reading Summer Reading!

Teen Summer Reading starts on Sunday!  Are you ready? Are you stoked? Do you have a giant pile of books ready to read?

10th Annual Summer Reading Extravaganza

The summer festivities kick off on Sunday at CLP – Main with the Summer Reading Extravaganza.  What’s the Summer Reading Extravaganza, you ask? ONLY THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE YEAR.  There will be music. And games. AND A DUNK TANK.  That’s right, you can dunk one of your favorite librarians — all you need to do is write  a letter advocating for the library.

Teens who come will get a free book, and other goodies, and get to make BUTTONS.  And PLAY MINUTE-TO-WIN-IT GAMES.  It will be utter chaos.  And it will be awesome.

But the fun continues all summer long!  Here are some things to look forward to:

  • FINE FORGIVENESS.  Sign up for Teen Summer Reading, and we’ll waive your overdue fees on CLP materials.  We want you to be able to use your cards, people!!
  • FREE BOOKS.  Every teen who signs up gets a free book!  Of your choice! (From our selection, while supplies last.)  Many thanks to the Friends of the Library groups at many of our locations, who donated the funds to make this possible.  The books are on their way — if you go to your library next week and they haven’t arrived yet, please be patient — they’re coming!
  • FREE STUFF.  We have some special gifts, just for teens!
  • PRIZES.  Each library will give away a Target gift card each week!  All you have to do is read — every item you log onto your TSR account is a chance to win.
  • MORE PRIZES.  Read at least one book and fill out an online evaluation, and you might win six tickets to Kennywood and a limo ride there and back!
  • SPECIAL EVENTS.  When you sign up for TSR, be sure to check the box to win tickets to Teen Night @ PNC Park, with a VIP party and tickets to the game on August 19th!
  • MORE SPECIAL EVENTS.  Visit your local library to find out all about what’s going on this summer.  Don’t miss a thing, especially not the Wizard Rock shows coming up!

To sign up, just go here.  Until Sunday, it’ll take you to the Extravaganza page.  After Sunday, it’ll take you to the Summer Reading page.  Either way, you win!
