Teen Summer Reading Program ~ How it Works!

Read ~ read ~ read ~ (at your ability level, of course) and write a brief review of each book (review forms are provided).  For each review submitted you receive a BOOK BUCK. Use your Book Bucks to "buy" fun prizes (see them on display in the library).  When you buy your prizes, place your name and phone number on the back of each Book Buck. These Book Bucks become your Raffle Tickets! Place them into the Raffle Prize Bags of your choice.

These prizes will be drawn at the End of Summer Party!

The last day to hand in Reviews for Book Bucks is Friday, August 17th, at the End of Summer Party.
