Teens are invited to Spark a Reaction with the Garfield County Library's Summer Reading Program. Each week teens can earn a book buck or coupon to a local business AND enter into a drawing for one of our fantastic themed gift baskets loaded with the best prizes. Read books, e-books, magazines, and audio books of your choice (or off of your school’s summer reading list) and bring back the bookmark you get at signup to verify that you read. If you turn in at least five completed bookmarks, you will get a book of your choice! Some of the books are listed here under "Prize Books," but the availability and selection will be on a first come, first served basis. You can register and pick up your registration materials beginning May 31 at your local branch library.
If you are unable to attend a program on a certain day, don't worry! All six library branches will be hosting either morning or afternoon performances of the same events. See below for dates and times for each program.
