Teen & Adult Summer Reading Program

Posted by mcpl on

This year Teens and Adults will have several ways to participate in the 2022 Summer Reading Program!




For every hour you read, place a check or color in a square on your reading log. You will have a chance to win many prizes and coupons this summer. 

When you have completed a reading log you will be entered into our prize drawings




Want an extra challenge this summer? 

To be entered for prizes, teens can complete a BINGO card anyway (horizontal, vertical, or diagonally).




Have a book you enjoyed this summer? Great, tell us about it!

Teens can complete Book Reviews for an extra entry for Prizes.



Take-and-Make Craft Pick-up on Fridays at 10 a.m. at both Marion and Old Fort Branches or at your local Bookmobile stop. 

Crafts are for teens in grades 6th – 12th.


Return Reading Logs, BINGO Cards, and Book Reviews by 5 pm, August 6th.

The drawing will take place on August 12th.
