Teen Summer Reading

Read books, finish activities, and win prizes

Teen Summer Reading has begun and lasts until August 31. This year, it's all about badges. All of our yellow badges are activity based, all of our blue badges are earned by reading. Earn one badge from each category and win a Chipotle coupon. Earn two badges from each category and get a voucher for free tickets to see the Washington Nationals. Here's a guide on how Teen Summer Reading works. 

After signing up, there will be lots of chances to earn badges at Francis Gregory Library this summer. See below for programs and their badges.
