Teen Summer Reading 2018

How it works:

1. Teens get a prize just for signing up!
2. We’ll provide a BINGO card with various reading suggestions & other library related activities. Teens can choose what to read and which squares to complete!
3. Every BINGO they get earns them a prize, starting with a ticket to our Pool Party!
4. Every BINGO also earns them an entry into the weekly drawing!

  • There will be 8 weekly drawings for a $20 gift card. 
  • Gift cards will be given for Eli’s, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, and Dairy Queen! 
  • Weekly entries will roll over into the Grand Prize drawing at the end of the summer!

    Don’t Forget: There will fun teen programs throughout the summer including a Pizza Party and Trivia Night! All programs and details are in the Morton Library Summer Reading Guide. You can also view our Teen Summer Events below.
