Teen Summer Reading 2018

June 2 - July 26

Teen Summer Reading Program 2018  

(Middle and High School-aged Students)

What makes the Teen Summer Reading Program different than the Kids Summer Reading Program? Well, one thing we acknowledge is that you are busy in the summer (sleeping, eating, working, sleeping, vacationing, sleeping, etc), so this is a program you can do on your own time. You really only have to show up once to get this packet, and then one more time to cash in on your Summer Reading Rewards. Does that sound good? We hope so, because if you picked up this packet you are in it to win it. Please read through the rest of this information to find out how to fully participate.


There are three ways to participate, and you don’t have to pick just one; you can do them all if you like. We’d love it if you did.

  1. Keep a Reader’s Log.
  • The goal for this summer is to read for 600 minutes (10 hours). If you break that up, it’s 120 minutes (or 2 hours) a week.  You can do that! 
  • Record the number of minutes you read on your log and come in when you’ve completed your 600 minutes to receive passes for:

-a free MYO frozen yogurt treat.

-a coupon for a free slice of pizza from Pizza My Heart

-a pass for either the Mirror Maze or Mini Golf

-a pass for Monterey Lanes (local bowling alley)

-your name put in a drawing for a $50 VISA gift card.

-a free book of your choice

  • The last day to turn in your log will be Wednesday, August 1, 2018 at 5:00 pm. (Please make arrangements with me if you cannot return your log by this date. My contact information is at the end of the packet.)
  1. Do the Blog Challenge
  • Go to, click on Teens and follow the Summer Reading Links.
  • Find the link to the blog (this link will become available on June 2nd) and click.
  • Instructions will be there, but they’re here as well and they’re easy: Read what you want, and tell me about it. For each book you’ve read, write an entry telling me the title, author, what you liked about the book and why. (You must write at least a paragraph, aka, four sentences.)  You can only do entries for books that you read this summer.
  • For each entry your name will be put in a drawing for a gift card. If you have done more than five entries, your name will be added to an extra drawing for two $50 VISA gift cards. I will also draw for ten $25 VISA gift cards. Depending on the number of participants, you could win more than once.
  • The drawings for the gift cards will be done on August 1, 2018.
  • The last day to do a blog entry will be August 1, 2018.
  1. Be social and Come to a Program
  • Each program will have its own themed prize.  


Check the calendar on the website, look at the Teen Events page, or visit the Library to grab a physical copy of the summer calendar to see what’s going on for your age group! Everything listed is free of charge.


          If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail Eboni at, call the Library’s Help Desk at 831-646-3933, or drop in during normal hours of operation.  We look forward to seeing this summer!

Tittle: The Hard Kind of Promise

Author: Gina Willner- Pardo

This book is about a girl named Sarah (main character) and her bestfriend Majorie. Sarah and Majorie made a promise to be best friends forever but, in 7th grade everyone/everything changes except Majorie. Sarah wants to meet new people and Majorie just wants to do the same thing they always did. Sarah wants to be Majorie's friend but the more time they spend together the more time she wants apart. I like this book because she likes Majorie but, she is not afraid to hangout with other people. The lesson is that you don't have to change someone just accept them for who they are. It is okay to have more than one friend.
