Summer Reading Program for Teens
Tweens and Teens in rising grades 6 and up, you’re invited to join Seekonk Public Library’s Summer Reading Challenge in-person and online! Log into the free Beanstack app to sign up for the “Read, Renew, Repeat” challenge and collect virtual badges for logging your reading, writing reviews, and participating in activities. Each badge earns one or more raffle tickets that you can enter into weekly online drawings as well as a variety of grand prize drawings. You’ll also want to come visit the library in-person for the fun and unique teen programs listed below, as well as to participate in a drop-in scavenger hunt and pick up a weekly pop-in charm for your bracelet (or shoes).

Be sure to join us for our Summer Reading Kickoff event on Thursday, June 13, where you can drop in between noon and 5 pm to register for summer reading, pick up your starting gift bag, and enjoy earth-friendly creativity stations. Activities include paper bead jewelry, button-making, t-shirt book bags, and more. Then, stick around from 5 pm to 7 pm for an interactive drum performance by Rhythm Room!
