Today is the first day that you can sign up for our Teen Summer Reading Club! The Club is open to those entering Grades 6-12.
The basic idea is that you:
Register. Read. Record. Win Prizes.
It’s super easy!
Visit the Children’s Desk of the Hillsborough Library to sign up for the club. You’ll get your 1st raffle ticket JUST for signing up!
You can read ANYTHING you want. There are no limitations and we don’t tell you what to read. You can read fiction, non-fiction, comics, manga, audio, e-books, magazines and more. You can even read your suggested or required school books.
Keep track of the # of hours you read each day. Write it on your take home reading log (we’ll give it to you at sign-up.)
Whenever you come back to the library, bring your take home reading log and tell us how many hours you’ve read so far. The more you read, the more prizes you can earn.
4. Win Prizes.
You earn a raffle ticket for every 3 hours that you read. Every raffle ticket is an entry toward our gift card prizes. Some of our gift cards this year are for GameStop, Barnes & Noble, Forever21 and more…
At certain hour milestones you can also earn prizes or DOUBLE raffle tickets. Some of our prizes include books, jewelry, tech decks, lip gloss, key chains, fake mustaches and more…
Every raffle ticket is also an entry toward our Grand Prize:
A Samsung Galaxy Tablet 2
7” full color display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB internal memory
Watch movies, play games, download apps, read books, take pics
When you sign up for the club, there is no obligation to read certain books or a certain number of hours. There is so much flexibility! The summer reading club is designed to reward you just for reading.
The summer reading club is from June 17 - Sept. 4.
You can sign up at any time. For example:
- If you don’t have a chance to register until July or August, you can still get credit for the hours you’ve read since June 17th.
- Let’s say you go away on vacation for months and you think you can’t participate. Chances are - you still can! Just keep track of how many hours you read over the summer. Even if you can’t make it to the library until Sept. 3, just stop by the Children’s Desk, sign up for the club, and mark the total number of hours you’ve read all summer.
You can still earn your raffle tickets and prizes! If you’ve read, then you’ve earned them!
So sign up for the Teen Summer Reading Club!
