Teen Summer Reading Club 2014

  Spark a Reaction Summer Reading for Teens

Welcome to the 2014 Teen Summer Reading Club!  We hope you are as excited as we are for a summer full of awesome programs, prizes and, of course, great reads.

What is the Teen Summer Reading Club all about?

SRC is simple: Read books and then submit short reviews to be entered in our weekly and grand prize drawings.  Complete these book reviews, along with other summer challenges on your game board to collect cool prizes and more chances to win our grand prize.  The more you read, the more chances you have to win!  And, of course, we’ll have awesome events for teens all summer long!

Book Reviews

1 book review= 1 entry into current weekly drawing + 1 entry into grand prize drawing.

How to submit reviews: There are two different ways to submit book reviews to us:

1)      Good old-fashioned paper book review forms.  We have included a few book review forms with your SRC packet, but feel free to ask for more at the reference desk if you run out.  Each time you finish a book and a review, you can turn in these book reviews at the reference desk, where you will then a) put your name and phone number on weekly raffle ticket b) put your name and phone number on a grand prize drawing ticket and c) get your bingo board stamped by a friendly librarian!Click to Submit Online Book Review

2)      Google Forms reviews.  Want to submit your book reviews electronically? You can send us your reviews by simply filling out the Book Review Form and pressing “submit.”  We’ll receive your reviews and enter you into both of the raffles. You’ll have to come in and see us at the reference desk sometime during the summer, though, if you want your bingo board stamped and to get your prizes.

Bingo Board

Win fun prizes by completing SRC challenges on your bingo board and getting a “bingo” (an entire row stamped: across, down, or diagonally).  We’ll stamp that square for you, and give you the prizes (up to 3) when you get a whole row.  Get a “blackout” (all squares stamped) and in addition to all three prizes, you will get 3 extra entries into the grand prize drawing!


All Teen SRC programs—except the Weird Science Wednesday movie screenings—require (free) tickets that you can get at the reference desk.  For more info on any of our awesome programs this summer, see the calendar on the back of the bingo board, the WPL website, our teen Tumblr page, or—as always—ask a friendly librarian!
