Teen Summer Reading Program
The Teen Summer Reading program takes place between Saturday June 25th and Saturday August 20th. Participants in grades 6 through 12 can submit written reviews, and also can post on social media with the hashtag #obplteenSR, to be entered into special summer reading raffles for prizes themed to this year’s Summer Reading Theme: Oceans of Possibilities. If your submissions follow the criteria listed below, they will also be counted as volunteer credit as well!
-Create an account on http://obpl.readsquared.com/ and join the Teen Summer Reading Program.
-Submit written reviews to your READsquared account to be entered into summer reading raffles for prizes!
-You can create reviews based on any media such as books, movies, games, TV shows, comics, manga, or anime.
-If your submissions follow these criteria, they will count for summer reading volunteer hours. Each accepted submission will count as 1 hour of volunteer service.
- You must be in grades 6-12 in order to participate in the Teen Summer Reading program and have your submissions eligible for volunteer hours.
- All written reviews must be at least 300 words.
- Social media posts will not count as volunteer hours, but will be counted as bonus entries for the summer reading raffle prizes. You can post fan art, voice-over reviews, or library photos online with the hashtag #obplteenSR and submit a link as a review on READsquared to get these bonus entries!
-At the end of the Summer Reading Program (Saturday, August 20th), you will be able to receive a Volunteer Hours letter that will document the community service hours you have earned for taking part in the program. We can create a physical copy that you can pick up at the library or email a PDF document to the email you have registered on your READsquared account.
-Fan art and reviews can be posted within the library in our Teen Zone to showcase your works throughout the summer. These will be put on our teen bulletin boards for other patrons to view. If you would like for your work not to be posted, please put “Do Not Post” at the end of your review.
