Teen Summer Reading

June 8 - July 31

Teens entering grades 6 through age 19 are welcome to participate. Activity log/bingo sheets are available at the library or online. Mark off and return the bingo sheet each week to earn up to 17 spaces/week on our life-sized board game*, Heroland. Battle your favorite heroes from comic books, TV shows, movies, and literature. Win great prizes like free books, movies, and more. Register at the library or online today!

How it works:

  • Complete as many bingo squares as you choose (with at least 2 hours of reading required). Across, Down, Diagonal or Blackout bingos receive a prize, but that’s not all…
  • Each bingo square is worth board game spaces! Move as many spaces on our Herolandboard game as you’ve earned on your bingo sheet.
  • If you land on a hero, you must prepare for battle! See a teen staff member to roll a dice. You must roll a number higher than the number on that hero’s poster.
  • You will get 2 chances to roll per day. If you are unsuccessful at defeating the hero, you must wait until the following day to make another attempt.
  • Every 10 spaces earns you an entry into the finale raffle.
  • Good luck!

“...and may the odds be ever in your favor.” -Effie Trinket
