Get in the Game, Read! Tweens 'n' Teens Summer Reading Program (Grades 6-12) begins June 1st!

Wednesday, August 31, 2016
Bethpage Public Library

Sign up beginning June 1st!

We’ve changed the way summer reading works! Instead of counting books this year, we’re counting pages. At the end of every month, submit your book list in person or online with the amount of pages you’ve read. Every 100 pages you read will automatically enter you to win from a monthly raffle of awesome prizes and gift certificates. Reviews are no longer mandatory – but each one will count for an extra 10 pages, so submit them!

All participants are invited to the Midsummer Read-in on July 16th and the Summer Reading Celebration on September 17th. For complete guidelines and rules call (516) 931-3907 or visit the reference desk!

Grades 6 - 12 only. SD #21 only. SD #21 students wishing to receive 21st Century credit must first register at the Bethpage Library before registering at school in order to guarantee credit.
