Summer Reading Program - Reading Is So Delicious for Teens!

A lot of exciting things are going to be happening for the start of the Richmond Public Library's Summer Reading Program. The theme for this year's program is  Reading Is So Delicious! The program begins Saturday, June 16th and everyone can participate. 

Let's talk about TEENS.
This is an exciting time for teens. We have more programs and cool prizes including a chance to win a Kindle Fire® at the finale.
This year, we are introducing a new online registration for teens called Litkeeper! Now teens will be able to enter and keep track of the books they have read from any computer! 
Five books are required to complete the program. However, they may substitute "one" book if they attend an event .

Speaking of events...we are offering awesome events for teens throughout RPL. We will start with Main's summer reading kick-off this Saturday, June 16th, with inspirational teen author, Rachel Coker. She is going to talk about her book, Interrupted: Life Beyond Words and be available for book signings. Rachel also will share her experience as a young writer. This will be a great opportunity for young writers to come and meet her. Just for Girls is a program where authors, Meg Medina and Gigi Amateau,  presents their summer reading list for girls at the Main Library June 19th at 7pm. More information on their reading list can be found by clicking this link, Girls of SummerNikki Giovanni will be at the Main Library later this month, June 27th at 2:00 pm and everybody is invited.
