This year, you are required to read for 2 hours a week, totaling 16 hours by 8/09/17. This averages out to a little more than 17 minutes a day, so we know you can do it! If you log 16 hours, you are eligible to win giftcards to local businesses and other prizes. Just log 2 hours a week of reading (summer reading for Masco, audiobooks, and magazines count) and we will put you in the running for a prize! Log your reading online here.

Thursday, June 29th

Students going into Grade 7 and up: Bring your favorite book to the library and talk about it with your peers! We're running this book club a little differently... you don't need to read the same book as anyone else. This is just an opportunity to talk about your favorite books and have some pizza! All teens who attend and are participating in the Topsfield Library's Teen Summer Reading Program will receive a bonus entry into the first prize drawing.
