Calling all teens (grades 6-12) who are interested in revamping the Farmington Community Library Teen Advisory Board for the coming year! We need teens who are willing to help plan programs for their peers, step up social media interaction, and make the teen areas of the two branches the best they can be. This is a great opportunity for volunteer hours as well as learning skills that will be useful in the future. Oh, and we're also pretty sure it will be fun.

How Does This Work?
Join the 2016 Teen Summer Reading Program:
Get in the Game: READ!


Who: Participants have finished 7th through 12th grades.

When: June 4th, 2016 through July 31st, 2016.

Where: Farmington Community Library--Both Branches

How: Once registered, you are ready to begin reading, participating, and logging!

Because our theme this year is health, fitness, and sports, you have a couple of options for earning hours to log. You can read (books, ebooks, graphic novels, magazines, newspapers, online stories, etc.), listen (audiobooks), participate (attend programs at the Library), or get active (go for a walk or a run, play a sport, dance, even play a video game with Kinect, Dance Dance Revolution or similar).

Keep track of how long you spend on each book or activity (you can pick up a reading log at the Library to make it easier), then log in to record what, how long, and your reactions to what you read or did. Logging begins Sunday, June 5th at 9 am. Only activities done after you've registered for the program count.

Every 5 hours you log is an entry in the weekly prize drawings, and every 30 hours logged is an entry in the Grand Prizes drawing. Plus, logging at least 30 hours earns you a free book from our Scholastic Book Fair and an invitation to the Finale Party!

You may earn more entries into the Prize Drawing by reading additional 30 hours. However, you can only earn a free book one time. You can only win one weekly prize; winning a weekly prize will not affect your chances in the Grand Prizes drawing.

At minimum, a one sentence comment supporting your reaction must be logged to be considered a valid entry and to avoid spammy entries. Irrelevant comments will cause the entry to be discarded and will not count towards log totals.

Hours must be logged by Sunday, July 31st, 5:00 p.m. to be in the Grand Prizes Drawing.

The Grand Prizes drawing will be held on Monday, August 1. Weekly drawings will be held on Fridays.

This program is generously supported by the Farmington Friends of the Library.

It was a quick beach read but pretty formulaic. Good writing but not something I'd read again.  Juniors - Library Catalog

I would recommend this book to people who enjoy reading fairy tales. It really puts a spin on the fairy tales we know , but at a reading level for 6th-7th graders!   Flunked - Library Catalog
