2014 Summer Reading

The 2014 Summer Reading program is now closed.

CTBL Summer Reading

CTBL’s summer reading program will run from June 9th to August 10th.  To register call the library and speak with a reader advisor.  This year’s STEM related themes are “FIZZ! BOOM! READ!” for younger readers and “Spark a Reaction” for teens.  A reading list with titles related to these themes will be sent upon registration.

This year we’re doing something a little different.  We are still encouraging reading, but we’re also encouraging interaction on our blog http://ctblsummerreading.wordpress.com/. The librarians will initiate discussion topics for participants to respond to on the blog.  The more participation we get from everyone – the more fun it will be.

This is how we are doing the prizes this year: You’ll be reading, and posting comments on the blog for points. The Friends of CTBL will make a donation to a charity of your collective choice. Each blog comment and each hour read will generate a point in this year’s Summer Reading Games.  At the end of the program we’ll add all the points together. Each point will be equal to 10 cents. The Friends will send a donation for the value of the points to the organization that wins the most participant votes in each theme from the options mentioned on our blog.

We look forward to a great summer with you!
