The 2013 Tween & Teen Summer Reading Program kicked off May 20th and will run until August 3rd, 2013! This is a great way to earn cool prizes by reading whatever you'd like. All you have to do is read 6 books and you'll earn a cool keepsake safe & a book of coupons for all kinds of great food and entertainment. This year's theme is Beneath the Surface and there are a ton of fun events happening all around Tulsa to celebrate. Below you can check out the Summer Reading Program event guide, read performer descriptions, and even print off a reading log (these are also available at all library branches).
Thank you to all who entered this year's Young People's Creative Writing Contest! Winners will be notified by telephone in early August.
Have a great summer!

This is the section where we hard working teen librarians tell you what we liked and why you might like it. Check out what's new and what might be new to you.
"The Goddess Test series are worth the read. They have a modern twist on the Greek mythology. I loved all five books."
Movie adaptions of science fiction and fantasy YA novels are nothing new, given the wild popularity and success of series like Twilight, Harry Potter, and The Hunger Games. Here are more books that will soon become movies, with all the details you need to know.
The Mortal Instruments
The Book: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare is the first in the five-book (so far!) series. It follows Clary Fray as she encounters a gritty supernatural world after witnessing a murder. Find a copy here.
