If you really, REALLY love to read, our summer reading program is for you!



Summer is a great time to catch up on reading what you love - and to make it more fun, we offer prizes for you to earn along the way.

This year’s theme is “Unmask!” and while we’ll be having programs that are comic related, that aspect can also be applied to whatever novels you choose to read this summer. The heroes and villains in the books you read may be hiding something (their true identities, for example?), or carry around some dark secret that they’re afraid to reveal. You get to decide which titles you want to read that has these elements and submit brief reviews for chances to win our Grand Prize!


Read pages to earn goal level prizes. Read all of your pages? You can still continue to participate in the program by writing reviews and attending events.

  • Each 200 pages logged earns a goal level prize listed below.

  • Each book review submitted earns a ticket in the Grand Prize Drawing.

  • Each Teen Summer Reading Unmask event attended earns a ticket in the Grand Prize Drawing.




Goal level prizes:

1) 200 pages: a “grab bag” gift
2) 400 pages: $5 Planet Pizza or Chicken Joe’s gift certificate
3) 600 pages: An online raffle ticket to the Grand Prize Drawing on August 8

*Goal level prizes 1 and 2 can be picked up after July 1 at the Fine Arts Desk on the second floor of the main library.*

Perfect by Natasha Friend is a great book. It is a relatively short book, but goes through the life of an average middle school kid. This novel is great for middle schoolers since Perfect is about middle school and home problems. I would highly recommend this book  find this in Greenwich Library Catalog

The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann is an awesome book. Starting with the first chapter, you're totally caught by surprise, and it only gets better from there. This book will keep you reading until you've finished it!  find this in Greenwich Library Catalog
