It Has Begun!

Teen Summer Reading 2019 has officially begun. The website to report the books that you have read is now live. Start reporting on what you have read ASAP. (And if you don’t have access to a computer, don’t worry; there are paper copies of the recording sheet available at the circulation desk and in the Teen section of The Field Library)

Remember: with each book that is recorded on the form, you will earn 1 raffle ticket and 1 milestone point. You may use the milestone points to make the following purchases:

  • Tier 1 Milestone – 5 points: participants can earn 1 Airhead bar, 1 rock candy, or 1 pack of Pop Rocks
  • Tier 2 Milestone – 10 points, participants can earn 1 ice cream bar, 1 set of ear buds, or 1 blow-up globe
  • Tier 3 Milestone – 15 points, $10 Barnes and Noble gift card and 1 free book
  • Tier 4 Milestone – 20 points, $25 Barnes and Noble gift card, 1 Hudson Passport card from Spins Hudson

After you spend all, or some, of your milestone points, they are gone. But you can earn more by reading more books.

The raffle tickets that you earn can be used to enter into the drawings for this year’s prize packs. The prize packs are as follows:

  • Music Pack – ukelele, tuner, songbook
  • Comic Pack – 1 Marvel character and 1 DC character Funko Pop figure, Avengers keychain, Batman mug
  • Manga Pack – My Hero Academia figurine, Pokeball portable charger, Black Butler lanyard
  • Gaming Pack– $25 Gift card to Gamestop, $25 Gift card to Dominoes, Mountain Dew, Doritos
  • Tech Pack – Kindle Fire
  • Snack Pack – Cookies, Chips, Candy, Soda
  • Adventure Pack – 1 Hudson Passport card from Spins Hudson, 1 reusable water bottle

Any milestone points that are unused by August 23 will be converted into raffle tickets.  We will find out who the prize pack winners are on August 26, at our Teen Summer Reading 2019 Wrap-up event.

Winter Reading Challenge Results

I want to take a moment and congratulate Peter A. for winning a prize during our Winter Reading Challenge. Peter won a $25 GameStop gift card for his efforts. By reading at least three books, completing a few brief summaries of the books, and handing in his entry sheet, Peter was entered into a drawing for the prize.

There will be other opportunities like this one throughout the year, so be sure to stop by the library and/or visit this site to keep up with the latest announcements!Copy of Copy of Warm Up with a Good Book

Teen Movie Nights (..okay, afternoons)

The first of our Teen Movie Nights will be on Monday, April 1, 2019 at  3:30 pm.  The selected movie is Ralph Breaks the Internet, the sequel to 2012’s Wreck It Ralph.  As a big fan of video games, I really enjoyed Wreck It Ralph. And from what I have read, the sequel is a worthy follow-up that expands references beyond video games and into other interesting areas.

Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018)

Rated: PG                   

Runtime: 112 minutes
