Teen Summer Reading Club 2015

justice leagueTeens! The summer is here and the Liverpool Public Library is celebrating it for six straight weeks. Teens in grades 7-12 can take part in the celebration by signing up for the summer reading club. Signing up is easy and has already started. Click here to go to the signup page.

Just being a part of the club will give teens an entry each week for a rare reward. These rewards include tickets to the State Fair, Pole Position Raceway, The Most, Wonderworks, and more. As an incentive to keep reading, every 100 pages you read (and log into your account) will earn you an extra entry. Also, every teen program you attend will earn you another entry. Winners will be totally random and the teen librarian will notify winners on Mondays.

Even if you don’t win a rare reward, everyone in the club may still choose a DVD or a Book from our rewards cart once per week. The rewards cart will be directly behind the main information desk.

The Teen Summer Reading club is for Teens grades 7-12 only. It runs from 6/24/15 - 8/14/15

Want to Volunteer at the Library?

Shelf Reading VolunteerThere are a few different options for teens who want to volunteer at he library.

1) Are you a Liverpool High School senior that needs to volunteer a total of five hours? If so, the library offers teens a chance to fufill their volunteer hours by shelf reading. During the school year, the teen librarian holds training sessions once a month for seniors interested in shelf reading. Before you can recieve any credit, you must first attend one of these training sessions. Check out Liverpool Public Library's calendar of events to see when the next training session is.

2) If you wish to do ongoing volunteer work at the library, please refer to the following page and fill out the online application. http://www.lpl.org/about-the-library/volunteering

3) You could be a teen summer volunteer. Summer volunteers help the children's librarians with their various summer programs. If you're interested  in this option, please contact the teen librarian between May 1st and June 1st of each year. We have filled all our volunteer slots for this summer 2015!

Considering College?

Okay, if you’re considering college at all it’s time to get serious about the planning.  Below you’ll find a few very useful web sites and a list of books you can checkout at the library.  Start planning for college as soon as possible.  It’s really tough when you enter your senior year of high school and find out you haven’t quite taken the right steps to get you where you want to go.
