Summer Reading Program for Teens

Everything you need to participate in this year’s Summer Reading Program can be found here.


We’re Making a Zine

We’re looking for middle and high school students to write/draw/create for the library’s first zine – The Tower.

We want you to document the summer of 2020. Create something that represents this summer to you.

What’s a zine?
It’s a homemade publication about anything and everything. Watch this for some more info about zines.

How do you contribute?
Write, draw, collage, photograph – make anything that you can share on half a piece of computer paper. Submissions can be digital or on paper. You can make more than one page. Drop it off to the library by August 14.

What else do you need to know?
We’ll make copies of the zine for everyone who contributed and have them available for the community to look at.

If you want credit for your work, please include your name on it! On a separate paper, please give us your name, age, and phone number or email.
