"Let the Games Begin!

On June 13, we "Let the Games Begin" with our Welles-Turner Memorial Library Teen Summer Reading Program. Online registration began June 9. Through August 13, teens will have the opportunity to win fun rewards just for letting us know what they're reading. You'll get a fabulous T-shirt after you read your first book and, every week that Start Here Stamp-copyrighted image/Fotolia.comyou read an additional book, you'll be entered into a drawing to win one of several gift cards. At the end of the program, all participants will have the chance at some pretty exciting grand prizes. The books you read can be logged online at home or the library. Feel free to stop by the Reference Desk if you have any questions, and get ready to read like you've never read before! To register and record your reading, click here.

A big thank you to the Friends of the Welles-Turner Memorial Library for their generosity in helping us fund the programs and prizes this summer.
