Welcome to the Worcester Public Library Teen Summer Reading online platform! This year's theme is "Build a Better World." How? Get involved at your library this summer! Read for fun, for school, or to someone else; listen to audiobooks and track your time to the left. 


Plus, you can earn cool stuff by hitting reading goals:
  • Bronze Level (260 minutes): A LED frisbee
  • Silver Level (500 minutes): A 4 GB USB drive 
  • Gold Level (1000 minutes): A Metal Earth model kit
One lucky person who reaches the gold level will also win our Grand Prize,  a creativity kit filled with rad stuff like Lumi photoreactive dyes, sculpey, a Wreck this Journal and more to help you keep creating after summer has ended.

We've got a bunch of great programs for when you're not reading, too - try to deduce your way out of one of our Escape Rooms,  learn about your rights in a Know Your Rights  program from the ACLU, chill out with both tabletop and video games at our Teen Games Guild and FIFA Fridays programs, learn to write your own music in our Lyrics Writing Workshop,  or  even help us shape the future of the library as part of our Teen Advisory Group. 

It all builds towards a great summer at the library! Just log your time to the left, and you'll be on your way towards awesome prizes!

2017-07-28 Thu, Jul 27, 2017 -- Escape Room Kids: The Room of Requirement at 1:00 PM

Test out your sleuthing mettle with these dramatic games of deduction. We'll lock you in, and you'll have 45 minutes to follow the clues and find the final key. In our second of 3 summer escape rooms, you’ll step into the world of Harry Potter, where you’re trapped in the Room of Requirement after sneaking after your rival. To make it out, you’ll have to deduce what your rival was up to! Do you have what it takes to escape the room?

Ages: 12 and under
