For some of you school is out (yay!) while for others there are still a couple of weeks (and finals) to go, so that makes it time for Burbank Public Library’s TEEN SUMMER READING PROGRAM!

The program runs June 11-July 19 (six weeks), but you can REGISTER starting TOMORROW (Tuesday).

Registration is all ONLINE this year, so...
  • Click on “Register for Teen Summer Reading” at the top of the right column on this page. (Please note that if you click on it BEFORE Tuesday, it won't work--so don't assume it's broken, just register Tuesday or after!)
  • At the summer reading page, click on “TEENS: BENEATH THE SURFACE.”
  • Then click on “SIGN ME UP” on the registration page, fill out the form (which includes creating a user name and password) and you’re in!
You will receive an email confirming your user name and password—SAVE THIS EMAIL! You’ll need it later.

After you have registered, COME TO THE LIBRARY and go to the Reference Desk to receive your SWAG BAG.

Our program this year is called “BENEATH THE SURFACE,” and when you get your swag bag, you will discover (in the enclosed brochure) all the fun programs, movies, contests, crafts, and activities we have in store for you. Best of all, it’s FREE.

No, that’s not even the best. The best is, there are THREE WAYS TO WIN PRIZES!
  1. Show up to a program. That’s right, prize drawings at all programs. If you are a teen and you are signed up, you get a chance to win.
  2. Keep a reading log. Write down everything you read (book, manga, or graphic novel), and get a ticket for each item (at the Reference Desk). Tickets go in the jar, and once a week there’s a drawing when three lucky readers (at each library!) will win gift cards, movie tickets, and more! The more you read, the better your odds.
  3. Write book reviews. Remember when I said you’ll need your user name and password? If you go back to the online interface and log into YOUR page, you can write (short) book reviews, and you will be entered in a drawing for those, too. You can write as many as you like! There will be three drawings (June 21, July 5, July 19), so spread your reviews out over the six weeks to make it into all three drawings!
If you have any questions, click on all the pages across the top of this home page to find out more about summer book reviews, the summer art contest, and secret postcards. (Or, of course, come to the library and ASK YOUR TEEN LIBRARIAN!)

We look forward to seeing YOU this summer! Don’t forget to register! Any time May 28 or after.
