Spark a Reaction: Teen Summer Reading Program

July 30, 2014 by Webmaster
Spark a Reaction

May 23 to July 31, 2014

How it works: Just Read!

Register at any Lincoln City Libraries location. (Just for registering, you are invited to a Pool Party, Saturday, June 21!)

For every book you read, fill out an entry slip for a branch drawing at the end of the summer. The more you read, the more chances you have to win.

Read four books and you get:

  • A free kid's cup or cone from TCBY
  • A free ice cream cone from Runza Restaurants
  • Free admission to a Lincoln Saltdogs baseball game on Sunday, August 10, at 5 p.m.
  • A free cheesy burrito from Amigos
  • Half off any 15, 30 or 60-minute session at Lincoln Laser Tag.
  • One free male beta fish or $4.00 off any fish of your choice from The Fish Store
  • There will be one Grand Prize drawing for teens for reading four books and completing the program - an iPad mini.

There's a lot going on at the library this summer! Here's a list of our special events. (Here's a branch-by-branch listing of events.) Photos from some of this year's Teen Summer Reading events are here.
