Teens, ages 11-18, can participate in art classes, Harry Potter book clubs, as well as weekly drawings based on how much you read. Adults can have their names submitted to win prizes by reading 10 books over the course of the summer.
Eagle Mountain Library
The Eagle Mountain Summer Reading Program begins June 11th. This year, the library has a new app to help parents track the time their kids spend reading. To use the free app, search for Reader Zone (available for Android and iOS) and enter in the library reading code, "eagle-mountain-library."
Throughout the program, participants can collect small prizes as they check in with the library. The children's age group have additional activities that they can complete to earn an extra prize. Adults have a bingo-type card to track their reading progress throughout the summer.
The Highland Library Summer Reading Program begins May 21st. This year, the theme is music. For the children's age group, there are weekly activities and chances to earn prizes.
For the teen and adult age group, there are thirteen "playlists" of books to choose from. Reading five out of the thirteen playlists guarantees your name into a drawing. Completing all thirteen playlists gives you a total of three chances into the drawing. There are also weekly self-directed activities for teens and adults.
Make sure to register for some fun gifts.
The Lehi Summer Reading Program begins May 29th. This year, the theme is BINGO! Every time you complete a bingo, have the library mark it off and pick up a scratch card. Each scratch card gives you a chance to win awesome prizes. If you get a blackout on your bingo card, you'll earn a ticket for you and your family to the End of Summer Reading Pool Party on August 6th.
