⚔ Battle for the Library – Teen Summer Reading 2020 ⚔

In the Land of Libraria, you are a member of one of three powerful houses:
House Deepcurrent
House Steelflame
House Changewind
The three houses are engaged in a struggle to rule Libraria. Can you help conquer Libraria’s five provinces and make your house the Rulers of Libraria?

➣ How Do I Get Started?

The 2020 Teen Summer Reading Program is open to rising sixth graders through twelfth grade. You can register for Summer Reading online via our ReadSquared app/platform beginning May 26th. You can also pick up a paper registration form and reading logs via our curbside service at either library location beginning June 1st.

When you register for Teen Summer Reading, you’ll be sorted into a House. Earn points for your house by reading books and participating in online/at-home programs. The points you earn will help your house conquer the Land of Libraria.

You can download your copy of our Battle for the Library Rules and the Calendar of Events, or you can receive them if you pick up a paper packet via our curbside service. All the information is also on ReadSquared.

➣ How Do I Earn Points For My House?

Reading Logs

Reading Logs and Reviews can be submitted online on the ReadSquared app/website or on paper through our curbside service.
Turn in a Reading Log with a completed book: 1 point per 10 pages read
Write a 5 sentence review of a book you completed: 10-20 points

Programs

All events will be take-home or online this year. Online programs will be held on our Discord server (link will be sent to you after registration), where you will be able to chat with other teens in our program about books, programs and Battle for the Library as well as participating in our events live. Some events/programs will also be streamed live on our Facebook page. Our six main weekly programs will have packets with supplies and directions available for pickup at the libraries a week in advance, and you will be able to complete them at home on your own time or tune in live to follow along with the group.
