Teen Summer Reading is a collaboration between the University Park Public Library and the Highland Park Library, open to students entering 7th - 12th grade. Starting June 1, students may register online at tinyurl.com/teensrp2019.   

Each week participants will log their reading hours online to be entered into a weekly drawing to win one of three gift cards from a local business. Participants will earn 20 points for each hour they log. To complete the program, participants must earn 500 points (read for 25 hours). They can attend one program a month to earn 25 bonus points each. At the end of the program, participants who earn 500 points will be entered into the grand prize drawing!
