Hey everyone! We are almost at the mid point of our Summer Reading Program. A lot of teens have signed up for the program and we have awarded lots of prizes! However no one has made it to level 5 yet. Be the first!
Good luck teens!
Hey Teens! I wanted to give you all a little update on how Summer Reading has been going. You are all doing a great job! I'm so impressed with all the stories and pictures being posted, they are just fantastic! If you haven't yet, you should take some time to go read all the great stories being posted in the teen forum! The pictures are great too! Keep up the good work everyone!
Also, more teens than ever before are completing Bingos and winning prizes! If you haven't brought in your Bingo Card for a prize yet hurry, hurry! The bowling certificates are almost gone!
You all are doing a great job reading this summer! So keep up the good work! Participation like this is what allows us to do bigger and better things for you every year! So thanks for participating!
Don't forget we have a lot of great events planned for the coming weeks, Laura and I hope to see you there!
P.S. The first two YAK's in August are going to be Teen Advisory Group meetings, so if you would like to influence the sort of events we plan for you, join us and make your voice heard! If we aren't doing what you want, YOU can change that! Hope to see you soon!
"Make Waves" the Teen Summer Reading program is about to kick off. Starting next week, on your last day of school teens ages 11-18 are invited to pick up a bingo card (here at ACPL or download it from the web page) and begin the Teen Summer Reading Challenge!

Hey Teens! This is the ACPL Young Adult blog. Here is where you can keep up with what's happening in the Young Adult section and department. For our first blog we, of course, would like to tell you what's going on at the library right now! Teen Summer Reading is in full swing! If you would like to find out more information about what is going on here for teens this summer check out the Teen Summer Reading section of the website. If you are between the ages of 11 and 18 you can join teen summer reading by getting a Bingo card. You can pick one up at the Information Station or download one from this site. By completing the activities on the Bingo card teens can win prizes for doing the reading you are doing anyway! For more information please feel free to contact us!
