TEEN SUMMER READING PROGRAM

FOR STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES 7 – 12 IN FALL 2017. Registration for Summer Reading Program 2017 begins online Wednesday, June 14, 2017. This summer all participants must register online either from home or within the library. You must have your library card number available to register.

TEEN SUMMER READING PROGRAM REGISTRATION LINK: NUTLEYPUBLICLIBRARY.BEANSTACK.ORG

Beanstack is a web based program which will be used to enter and track books read. You may log books read to your account from home or at the library. Also, you may visit the Prize Table table where a volunteer or librarian will log your books for you. An advantage of using Beanstack is to keep a record of the number of books read for as long as you keep your account active.

EARN PRIZES
For students entering Grades 7 – 12 in Fall 2017, you will earn a prize for every book you read (your reading level or above). Log your book(s) in Beanstack and then visit the Prize table to receive your prize. You can pick up your first prize beginning June 26.

NOTE: Every 3 Manga or 3 YA Graphic Novels Read EQUALS 1 Book Read.

EARN RAFFLE TICKETS
In addition to your prize, for every 1 book you read (at your reading level or above) throughout the summer, you will earn a raffle ticket. Your earned raffle ticket can then be placed into the boxes of your choice to win Big Teen Prizes. The more books you read, the more raffle tickets you will earn, which means the greater the chance you will have to win one of the Big Teen Prizes. The last day to enter raffle tickets to be considered for Big Teen Prizes is Wednesday, August 9. Big Teen Prize drawings will be completed by August 12. You must be a Nutley Resident to win a Big Teen Prize. Only one winner per Big Teen Prize.

NOTE: Every 3 Manga or 3 YA Graphic Novels Read EQUALS 1 Book Read.
