Teen Summer Reading

WFPL’s Teen Summer Reading Challenge is June 22 - August 17.

The Challenge

  • Open to those entering grades 6-12.
  • To register, call (617) 972-6437 or stop by the Teen Desk.
  • When you register, let us know how many books you are going to challenge yourself to read over the summer. (Two book minimum. Listening to an audio book counts too!)
  • Read your books between June 22 and August 17.

Book Receipts

  • Fill out a book receipt for each book you read (available at the Teen Desk). Book receipts are due to the Teen Desk by 5 pm on August 17.


  • If you complete the challenge, you’ll be entered into a drawing for one of our fabulous prizes: backpacks full of new books or a gift card from local or online stores!
  • The drawing for these prizes will be at 3 pm on Monday, August 19. You don’t need to be present to win.

Summer Events

  • The Teen Department has a ton of fun events planned for June, July, and August. Check out our events calendar below. (A printable version is available here.) We hope to see you this summer!
