TEEN SUMMER READING PROGRAM

Every Hero Has A Story!

Teen Summer Reading Program

Do you LOVE to read? 

Then Join the Teen Summer Reading Program at the Ainsworth Memorial Library!

All you have to do is read one hero-related book during the summer. Can’t decide which book to read? Then choose one book from the teen reading list below. 

When you have finished reading the book, you can either write a one page (or less) book review about what you have read or create a work of art (in any medium – pencil, paint, photo, etc.) that represents the book you have read. 

There will be a pizza party at the library on Thursday, August 27th from 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm for those who participated in the program.  Here, you will present your book review or work of art, which will later be hung in the hallway for all to see!
