Important Messages
****Be sure to come in this week to pick up your prizes! The teen lock-in will be this Friday, July 26th from 8-11pm, so stop by to pick up your invitation and permission slip soon!****

Enter your goals online or pick up a paper goal sheet at the library.

Once you have entered your goals on the online log, you can keep track of what you do to meet those goals online as well. For instance, if your first goal is to read 2 books per week, you can enter "Read 2 books per week" in the goal box, then log the titles and authors of the books. Just enter the goal you're working on and what you did to meet each goal; you don't have to enter everything all at once, you can continue to log what you're reading or working on to meet your goals all summer.


I encourage you to write a review for each item you read so others can get ideas for good books! If you're not finished with the book, leave the review section blank, and ALSO mark "NO" for the question "Do you want to make this review public?"


Prizes
Goal 1 met: Deck of Round Playing Cards
Goal 2 met: Inflatable Guitar
Goal 3 met: A new book and an invitation to the teen lock-in on Friday, July 26th, where we'll play games, eat pizza, and hang out in the library after hours.


You can begin picking up prizes after Sunday, June 16th.


In addition to the level prizes, you can also earn raffle tickets for grand prizes by attending any teen program. For each program you attend, you will receive one raffle ticket that you can use to try and win prizes like a $25 gift card to Half Price Books, a $25 Walmart gift card, a boxed set of the Harry Potter series, and more!

The Picture of Dorian Gray
Author
Oscar Wilde
Review
This is one of my new favorite books (sadly, it was Oscar Wilde's only novel). It's a fascinating story about the consequences of one man's rash wish that he would retain his beauty, youth, and good looks forever, in exchange for the visible ruin of his soul being displayed in an ever uglier portrait of himself.  look it up in the BPL Catalog!

Review
I really enjoyed reading this book. it was about a girl who was in orchestra. But the try outs to be in the advanced orchestra she was on vacation at that time. so she resides to join the marching band. To get into the musical school. But when they they give her a mellophone instead of a french horn she flips out. One thing i love about this book is is she never gives up. she continues to try hard and you can tell she is passionate at playing music. If you enjoy realistic fiction this would be a good book to check out.  look it up in the BPL Catalog!
