Summer 2013 has arrived! Beginning Monday, June 10th, you can register for Teen Summer Reading Club at your local library and receive your Summer Reading Calendar.
Here at Chester County Library, you can mark your calendar each day that you read or listen to books for 60 minutes or more. Prizes will be awarded when you complete 20, 40 and 60 days of reading. Each time your calendar is checked by a librarian, your name will be entered in the Teen Summer Raffle, which will be held on September 6th. This year's theme for Teen Summer Reading Club is Beneath the Surface.
Mark your calendars for four Friday teen events! Online registration is required. You can register online for these events starting on June 10th by going to www.ccls.org > Find an Event > Chester County Library > On the calendar, find the event date and click on event name > Fill in your information.
