Join the 2019 Teen Summer Reading Program:
A Universe of Stories

If possible, don't use your school email to register; non-school emails don't get through school filters.  

Who: Participants have finished 6th through 12th grades.

When: June 1st, 2019 through July 28th, 2019.

Where: Farmington Community Library--Both Branches

How: Once registered, you are ready to begin reading, participating, and logging!

You have a couple of options for earning hours to log! You can read (books, ebooks, graphic novels, magazines, newspapers, online stories, etc.), listen (audiobooks), or participate (attend programs at the Library).

Keep track of how long you spend on each book or activity (you can pick up a memory aid at the Library to make it easier), then log in to record what, how long, and your reactions to what you read or did. Logging begins Sunday, June 2nd at 9 am. Only activities done after you've registered for the program count.

Also, our Teen Advisory Board came up with a series of challenges to incorporate into your summer.  Check out the "Challenges" tab - how many can you complete?

Speaking of challenges - this year we have a community challenge!  Last year, we cumulatively read 397,219 minutes, which equals 6,620 hours or 275.8 days.  That means we read our way past Saturn (236.7 days from the Sun)!  Do you think this year we can get past Uranus (1.3 years, or 683,280 minutes), or all the way to Neptune (2 years, or 1,051,200 minutes)?

Prizes:
  • Every 5 hours you log earns you an entry into the weekly prize drawings (a selection of $10 gift cards)
  • Your first 15 hours logged earns you a special halfway-there prize
  • Your first 30 hours logged earns you a free book from the Scholastic Book Fair, an invitation to the teens-only finale party, and an entry into our Grand Prizes drawing (one of three $100 gift cards)
  • Every 30 hours after that earns you an additional entry into the Grand Prizes drawing
You can only earn a free book one time, and you can only win one weekly prize; winning a weekly prize will not affect your chances in the Grand Prizes drawing.

Hours must be logged by Sunday, July 28th, 5:00 p.m. to be in the Grand Prizes Drawing.

The Grand Prizes drawing will be held on Monday, July 29th. Weekly drawings will be held on Fridays.

This program is generously supported by the Farmington Friends of the Library.
