* The summer reading club format -- Rather than having to read a specific number of books or pages, teens are reading based on hours. I think this is a great way to not only encourage a wide range of reading (such as books, online information, newspapers, ect.) but to place all teens on a level playing field when it comes to completing the program.
When I was planning my programs for this summer, I knew I wanted to do some sort of kick off for the summer reading club. I received great inspiration from one of the local high schools who, a few months ago, showed back-to-back book trailers as a way to promote books. There event was a big hit! So, why reinvent the wheel right? I thought this would be a great way to kick off this year’s reading club and give teens some ideas for books to read to complete the program. Since I work at both of our district’s branches, I will be doing this program once on Thursday, June 9 and once on Friday, June 10.
With that being said, here’s to my third year of teen summer reading madness!
