Get Ready for Spark A Reaction: Teen Summer Reading 2014
You have to read books for school this summer, so why not try to win some prizes? Go to the Greece Public Library website, select the Summer Reading Teens link (on or after June 27, 2014) and fill out the required information. When finished, click save. You will receive a confirmation message, along with your user name and password that brings you to your own Summer Reading home page.
Log in each hour of age appropriate material your read. Book reviews are optional. Prizes are drawn on Monday mornings, and winners are notified by phone and e-mail every week. You can submit your hours each week, or enter them on a specific week to win a certain gift card. We are also participating in the Soho Yogurt Cafe's Yogurt and Books Program. If you read 24 hours in the six week program this summer, you can win a free yogurt! Complete the reading, log in the hours in your page, and we will issue you a certificate for your free yogurt. Also, there will be fun puzzles each week at the library during the summer. Complete the puzzle, and turn it into the information desk to be entered in a raffle for a Wegmans giftcard and a free book from my bookcart! Download and print the puzzle HERE. The first puzzle "Rochester Summer Time Top Ten Trivia" must be turned in by close of business Friday, July 11th to be in the prize drawing.
The summer reading program begins on Friday, June 27 and ends on Sunday, August 10. Each week three $25 gift cards will be given away in random drawings from our teen readers. Remember, the more you read, the better your chances to win!
Week 1: Regal Movie Theatre gift cards
Week 2: iTunes gift cards
Week 3: Amazon gift cards
Week 4: Target gift cards
Week 5: Papa John's Pizza Cards
