Teen Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program
June 19-August 12

Tweens and teens entering fifth through twelfth grade are invited to register online or in person for our “Build a Better World” Summer Reading Program. Come into the library to receive a bag with your reading log, bingo sheets, calendar of events, pin, and instructions on how to participate in the program. This age will earn raffle tickets throughout the summer, with the first three free in your program bag! Each Friday from June 23rd through August 4th we will be giving away prize baskets; on August 11th we will present grand prizes! Raffle tickets will roll over from week to week, so keep reading to increase your chances of winning! Kids of all ages who register will also be entered into raffles all summer long to win great prizes from Scoop Deck, Wonder Mountain Extreme Mini Golf, Big Daddy’s Ice Cream, McDonald’s and more!
This free event is sponsored by the Friends of the Wells Public Library. For more information, please contact Jade Austin at jaustin@wellstown.org or call the library at 207-646-8181.
