How it works:

  1. This program is for teens going into the 9th grade through 12th grade.
  2. Starting May 25th come to OPL to sign up and receive the reading log for June and July. The first 100 teens to sign up get a Taco Bell coupon!
  3. Finish the reading log and return it to the library before the end of July to receive a prize bag.
  4. Starting July 25th come to OPL to pick up your shortened reading for August.
  5. Finish the August reading log and return it to the library on or before August 12th to receive a prize.
  6. For each reading log you turn in (a limit of one per month, per teen) you will be entered into a drawing for the Summer Reading Program teen grand prize!

A $100 Amazon Gift Card!
