Summer Reading 2022

Welcome to ACPL Teen Summer Reading 2022!

We are back to live programming, and the registration form can be found Right Here!

Events:

I've got events planned for the entire summer:

 

There is limited space available for Escape Rooms, the Intro to Magic: The Gathering event, and the tabletop role-playing game. By their nature, these events do not work well with large groups. Please do not register for these events unless you intend to participate, and if a conflict comes up and you will not be able to attend please let me know.

The first 12 registrants to the Captain's Log Book craft will work with actual leather, subsequent registrants will work with vinyl.

Flyers to explain individual events will be up by May 20.

Reading:

Reading logs will be done in the same ReaderZone app that we used last year. We log reading by time rather than titles, and ReaderZone logs by minutes. The ACPL Teen program will open for logging on June 1. The code to enter when registering is a8ea5.

 

Prizes:

The platform will accrue points for every minute that you log reading. To qualify for prizes, you must both log your reading and attend at least 3 events over the course of the summer. Prizes will be awarded through three regular prize drawings, as well as one for the most points earned. Names will be drawn and prizes awarded at the final wrap-up party in July. All four are prize baskets based around a $50 Amazon gift card.

If you have any questions, please contact me at 931-484-6490 ext 242 or k.tabor@artcirclelibrary.info. Thanks and have a great summer!

Summer Reading 2021

ACPL Teen Summer Reading 2021

Virtual edition take two: electric boogaloo!

Since Covid-19 is still a thing, the Summer Reading program will again be virtual. Due to a lot of issues with last year’s reading log app, we are moving to a new one this year. It’s called ReaderZone and it looks like this:

You’re joining the ACPL Teen program; the code for it is 3604e. I’ve set up three different groups to join – there’s one to track reading all summer, one for June projects, and one for July projects.  Registration will open up June 1!

Reading:

As usual, we will log reading by time rather than titles, and ReaderZone logs by minutes rather than hours. There are milestone goals set for major points along the way, and points will accrue all summer.

Crafts and Projects:

The project boxes can be picked up at the Art Circle Library on a first-come, first-served basis until I run out: you MUST be registered to pick up a box.  The June boxes will be available starting May 31, and July can be picked up starting June 30. There will be one box per month rather than weekly pickups, to make it easier on everyone.

I will be uploading videos for most projects and instructions for the others, hopefully twice per week. Links will appear here on the ACPL teen page, Facebook, and Instagram.

Prizes:

The platform will accrue points for every minute that you log reading and every project you complete, though these are logged separately. Sadly, there is no option in ReaderZone to upload pictures of your projects, so this is on the honor system. You are welcome and encouraged to upload pictures to Instagram and tag acplteens2020!

Prizes will be awarded through three regular prize drawings, as well as one for the most points earned. All four are prize baskets based around a $50 Amazon gift card.

If you have any questions, please contact me at 931-484-6490 ext 242 or k.tabor@artcirclelibrary.info. Thanks and have a great summer!

Summer Reading 2020 Wrap-up

Hi, guys! As you may have noticed if you have younger siblings or parents who participated in the Adult program, the other Summer Reading programs have all wrapped up but the teen program is still officially live.  I was hoping to get the Lynne Looney event up before wrap-up, but she and I have had issue after issue getting the video footage to behave and it’s been two weeks since July 31. We are still working on the video and it will go up sometime this month (kits are still available!), but I am wrapping up the program officially today, August 14, at 3:30 p.m. The prizes will be drawn and the winners contacted next week, and there will be goodie bags for everyone who participated starting Aug. 24. Let me know if you’d like me to mail it for you! Thanks for sticking with us through this really weird summer, Kristen
