It’s true though. Which means there are only two more weeks to get in your slips for teen summer reading as well! If you haven’t seen the amazing prizes we have for the August raffle, check out the last blog post. Currently, Team Moon is still in the lead, but is only about 10 points ahead of both Team Sun and Star which are tied, so I’m excited to see which team will pull through! The winning team will get a special display in the library featuring books they’ve read throughout the summer.
If you’re still planning on entering the Sci-Fi Short Story Contest, submissions are due by this Friday (the 23rd). You can drop your submission in the summer reading raffle box, or just e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And last, and most importantly: pizza. We’re celebrating the end of summer with a pizza party for teens, next Tuesday (the 27th) at 6pm. Give us a call at 856-629-1212 ext. 206 to sign up.
We’ve got about a week and a half left in July so I just wanted to share an update with you all. First of all, I want to say that I am really impressed with everyone’s participation, we’ve had over 150 entries this year so far! Currently, Team Sun is still in the lead, but Team Moon and Team Star have made massive comebacks in July and the scores are actually incredibly close!
July’s raffle winner will be contacted on August 1st so make sure to get your tickets in before next Thursday! Don’t worry if you’ve been busy this month, your previous entries will carry over.
For those who are hearing about this for the first time, it’s never too late to sign up! Just click here to register online, or stop by the reference desk the next time you’re in the library.
Thanks so much to everyone reading and attending programs this summer! Keep it up!
The summer reading program is a great way to enrich your summer, hang out with other teens, and of course win some awesome prizes!

Reading books, attending programs, and visiting museums all count toward your summer reading participation. The more you participate, the better your chances are of winning a prize!
Everyone who participates this year will also be assigned to one of three teams who will compete for bragging rights, fame, and glory.
