*Kirsten's Attendance Challenge: Kirsten has agreed that if there are more than 5 teens at more than 5 of the Teen Summer Programs, she will dye her hair.  Each teen at a program with more than 5 attendees will get to vote for the color of their choice (orange, pink, or red).  Before the finale, she will announce whether or not this challenge has been met, and the new hair color will be unveiled at the finale on Tuesday, July 31.

Teens (incoming 7th graders and up) may earn a raffle ticket for every teen program that they attend. They may also earn a ticket for every hour that they read, log, and submit to Kirsten. An additional ticket may be earned if teens choose to write a review of a book that they read for the program, which will be posted in the Teen Section. The raffle will be drawn at the Finale on Tuesday, July 31. The last raffle entries will be accepted on Friday, July 27. Please see Kirsten @ the Reference Desk for a Reading Log and/or Teen Review Form and to sign up for programs.
