Summer Reading - Teens

SRC teen banner

Teens in grades 6-12 will get lost in space by reading, attending a universe of programs and meeting Young Adult authors that are out of this world.

The Reading Challenge

Now's the opportunity to put away your school work and dig into books you'll love! This year's program runs from June 1 until July 31 (or until all prizes are given out).

Step 1
Pick up a paper reading log at any of our four locations, or try out the online reading log ReadSquared.

Step 2
Log every hour you read. You can also an hour's worth of reading credit by attending a teen program at the library.

Step 3
After five hours of reading, stop by any library location and show us your log to pick up a prize! If you're using ReadSquared, we'll look you up.

AppleSummer meal Program

Hungry children are more likely to have social and behavioral issues and face a more significant learning deficiency in summer that sets them back when they return to school in the fall. Due to the generosity of CitySquare Food, children ages 1-18 will be provided with meals during Summer Reading Challenge. This program is free and no registration is required. Visit for more information or call 469-904-7010.
