Welcome to the Maplewood Memorial Library Teen Summer Reading Program!

Summer is a chance to read what you want to read, when you want to read it. Fiction? Sure! Non-fiction? Super! Graphic novels, comic books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, ebooks, audiobooks, podcasts: nothing is off limits. Basically, we just want you to encounter words every day of your summer in some format. The more you encounter, the better off you’ll be in the next school year.

The more you read, the more chances you get to win cool prizes, too.  So how do you win?

  1. Register for the summer reading club starting Monday, June 19.
  2. Every time you finish reading a book, listening to a podcast, reading a comic book, etc, submit a Prize Entry. The more you read, the more entries you submit, the greater your chances of winning a prize! Want an additional entry? Submit a 2 or more sentence review and your name will be entered a second time with each submission.
  3. Keep reading and submitting until August 17. On August 18, 4 names will be drawn for 4 prize packs. If you win, you will be notified by email or Remind text message if you submitted your phone number upon registration.

Having trouble picking out something good to read? Check out some suggestions from the school and public librarians of South Orange and Maplewood on our Choices Summer Reading List.

Want to extend your summer fun at the library? Register for one of our Create Camp programs, or log some volunteer hours at our Build a Better World weekly volunteer programs! More information on programs can be found on our Events page.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your Teen Librarian, Emily Witkowski, at teens@maplewoodlibrary.org. Happy reading!
