Summer Reading

Teen Summer Reading

“A Universe of Stories” will be our 2019 Summer Reading theme, running from Monday, June 17th through Saturday, August 17th. This slogan was chosen by library professionals to help inspire children of all ages to dream big, believe in themselves and create their own story. Many new space-related materials will be available to enjoy together. Titles from your school reading lists will be available for all grades. A variety of programs and special events will be available for you to enjoy throughout the summer.

High School books will be available on the main floor of the library, in the Non-fiction room.

All teens may participate in the summer reading games. Pick up a brochure at the circulation desk for the rules.


We will not offer a separate electronic program to track the books you read this summer. You can, however, still keep a list of everything you’ve borrowed from JTL by following these steps:

1. Log into your account

2. Account Preferences

3. Click “Keep history of checked items”

4. SAVE.

After saving, the books you have read will be saved in a list that you can print at the end of the summer.
