Teen Summer Reading 2013 theme: Beneath the SurfaceThe 2013 Summer Reading Program was Beneath the Surface. Teens took art classes and cooking classes, played games, watched movies, solved crime at the CSI: Library murder mystery lock-in, got creative with fairy gardens and rock crafts, and showed off their best costumes at the Masquerade Lock-in. Check out the photos from last year's programs.

Teen Summer Reading Program 2014In the summer of 2014, we'll Spark a Reaction with science and technology. Check back for more information!
