2019 Teen Summer Reading

A Universe of Stories

Teen Steel Summer Reading Challenge
Read at least 495 minutes over the summer and earn a free ticket to a Bethlehem Steel Soccer Game! Stop by the Children’s Room Desk to register and pick up your challenge card. For every 45 minutes you read (there are 45 minutes in each half of a soccer match!), color in or check off a soccer ball on your challenge card. Once all 11 soccer balls are completed, return your card to the library to receive your promo code for your one free ticket! Completed cards must be returned to the library to receive your free ticket. Please see the library for specific details.

Codes can be redeemed for any Steel game between June 9th and September 18 - but keep in mind that the August 25th game is Delco Library Night!

Teen Summer Reading is for those entering grades 6 through 12 in the fall (up to age 18) and runs June 17 through August 10.
