Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library’s 2017 Teen Summer Reading Challenge invites students entering grades 7-12 next fall to “Design Your World”. The Challenge, which begins Monday, June 19, 2017 and runs through Monday, July 31, 2017, includes a variety of educational, recreational, and cultural events and encourages reading for fun and lifelong learning. Teens log reading and event participation online at library.escondido.org/summer to earn prizes donated by Friends of the Library and local businesses. As participants log their reading, they can earn prizes such as coupon packs and free books. Additional reading earns entries into the grand prize drawing, giving teens the chance to win items like a Kindle Fire, iPod Nano, or a Bluetooth speaker.

June events for teens include:

  • Summer Reading Challenge Kick-Off for all ages on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the Library’s front patio. Register for the Challenge and receive free samples from Chick-Fil-A and Rita’s Italian Ice.
