We're getting into week three of Teen Summer Reading. There are 90 of you signed up for summer reading! I am in shock! Shock, I say! Happily shocked. 

We had our first raffle and four lucky people walked away with gift cards. Who doesn't want a $10 Las Olas or Dunkin Donuts gift card, an hour at Blitz Park, or a round at Captain's Cove. And all you have to do is turn in the reading I know that you're already doing this summer. 
Don't forget your Summer ID can be found back near the Teen Area or by calling 926-3368. You can also turn in your summer reading online.
