Beneath the Surface
is the theme for the Monroe Public library summer library program for teens. Teens are students entering 6th through 9th grade in the fall. Students may register online at www.monroepubliclibrary.org beginning Monday, June 3, 2013 or in person at the Teen or Youth Service desks. Beneath the Surface runs for 8 weeks, from June 3, 2013 to July 26th, 2013.
Extra book review forms are available at the Teen or Youth Service desks when you pick up your Beneath the Surface booklet.
For each book review turned in (up to 3 reviews) students will receive a prize. When 3 book reviews are turned in the student will earn a ticket to the Cave Party, on Monday, July 29th from 3:30-5:00pm. To earn a ticket to the Cave Party students are asked to read 3 books through the summer and write a book review on each book.
One Cave Party ticket will be earned per person. No extra tickets will be earned. Extra book reviews turned in with names on them will be put into a drawing for a prize.
