Jervis Library’s Teen Summer Reading Program is back this year, with new prizes, online reporting and more events than ever.

Teen Services Librarian Stephanie Markham invites teens entering seventh through 12th grades to join in the festivities, happening throughout July and August.

“Programs will be held in the library’s accessible, air-conditioned auditorium. All are free and open to the teen-aged public. Some programs require registration, which may be done by contacting the library,” said Markham.

Highlights of this summer’s offerings include Hands-On Science activities, Book and Comic Book Clubs, Trading Card Games, a Basic Bicycle Repair Workshop, a “Hamilton” Trivia Party, Jewelry Making, Fantasy Writing Workshops and the annual Decorate Yourself with Henna event.

Teens can join by signing up at the library or going to tinyurl.com/JPLregSRP. Markham said, “The more you read, and the more events you attend, the more chances you have to win one of our fabulous prizes.”
