Have Fun With Us This Summer!

Starting Monday, June 23, teens 12 & up can join our Teen Summer Reading Program.

Read anything you want (please keep it on your reading level) and write a short review about it. You can even email your reviews to jruggiero@nassaulibrary.info; include your name, the book’s title, author and your review.
Two reviews will be accepted per day per person.

The reviews must be for books you read during this summer.

So here’s how it works:

  • Sign up and you’ll get a pencil, bookmarks and a button
  • Read 1 book- get a Fizz Boom Read cup.
  • Read 2 books- get a Make Your Own Bouncy Ball kit.
  • Read 3 books- get a Light Up Keychain.
  • Read 4 books- get an electronics case and… you’ve finished the program! But you should still keep reading!

*One prize per person, while supplies last!
