Teen Summer Reading Programs @ RPL

Teen Summer Reading

The theme for the teens is Groundbreaking Reads (click on this link to get to the online registration). Teens can register online for the Summer Reading program and keep track of the books they read. There are also informative links and book recommendations on the page for teens to explore. Books create an outlet to another world. There are so many genre of books to choose from...who knows what 'Groundbreaking Reads' you will find!

Summer Programs for Teens
This is another exciting time for the teens at RPL when it comes to programs. The YA Committee has put together some amazing programs for teens this summer. The series of programs focuses on career development for teens. This all started with the Job Club 4 Teens at the Main Library and the program has been very successful. This program was so successful that we will be having it at other locations during the summer. Main will continue the Job Club program during the year with topics relating to job seeking and with assistance from local employment agencies.

There are other unique programs such as Container Gardening for Teens and Aromatherapy for TeensBy providing these programs, teens will discover other avenues which may lead to additional career options.

We are also really excited about our partnership with Radio-One. There will be several workshops at various locations with popular Richmond DJs. The DJs will talk about their careers in radio and give the teens the insight of interviewing celebrities.

This is just some of the highlights. There are so many teen programs to talk about!  Check out the attached flyer for all of the teen programs:
