Teen Summer Reading

Read the Book, Watch the Movie!

Summer Reading for Teens!

No registration required.  Simply read a book that's been made into a movie, then watch the movie, and fill out a short form from the library 
comparing the two. You can follow our suggestions ("Hunger Games", any of the Harry Potters, "Maze Runner", and many, many more), or pick your 
own.  Want to try some classic dystopia like "1984" or "Lord of the Flies"?  There are movies for those, and for many, many more books you 
may never have imagined.  We have lists at the library to help you.  Read and watch as much or as little as you like, but at the end of 
Summer Reading, July 27, the person who's read the most wins a gift card from Amazon. 

So start now!
