“Build a Better World” Summer Reading Program for Teens!

Register for the teen summer reading program through July 31st for opportunities to win great prizes including free books, tickets to the Topsfield Fair, and raffle tickets for the grand prizes – $50 gift cards! Teens win prizes by tracking how much they read and the events they attend on their “Build A Better World” Game Cards. The more you read and the more you do, the more you win!

There are three ways to sign up:

    Visit the teen table during Summer Reading Sign Up Night on Wednesday, June 21 from 6:30 to 8:00 PM. Get free ice cream too! 😀

    Attend the first teen summer event, Henna Tattoos! (Information below.)

    Can’t make either event? Then just stop in the library any time between Thursday, June 22 through Monday, July 31, to sign up and get your game card. Game cards will be available at the Reference Desk, and in the Young Adult Office (when staffed).
