Teen SRC – Register Now!

All Together Now image for Teen Summer Reading Challenge. Grades 7 - 12.

Teens share your love of reading and win awesome PRIZES!  (For those entering Grades 7 – 12 in September)

It’s easy to join. Here are step-by-step instructions:

  1.  Click here to register starting on June 1, 2023. Registration is ongoing, so no worries if you don’t get a chance to register immediately. The program ends on August 21.
  2.  Read any book you’d like – printed books, eBooks, and even audiobooks!
  3. Log each book in Beanstack, and write a quick “30-Character or More Review” of what you’ve read.
  4. For each book review, get an eTicket and enter a raffle for one of our fabulous gift baskets! Raffle tickets can be entered into the system for any of the prizes that you choose.
  5. At the end of the Summer Reading Challenge (August 20, 2023) we will contact the raffle winners!

NOTE:  If you already have an Individual Account with Beanstack from last year (your own account, not your family’s Kids Summer Reading account), all you need to do is log into your individual account and update your info to register!  If you were in the Kids Summer Reading Challenge last year, you must create a new, individual account (separate from your family’s account) to participate in the Teen Summer Reading Challenge.

Register by June 30 and enter to win one of our special early registration raffles:

  • 4 free tickets to the American Museum of Natural History
  • Gift certificate for a 2-hour rental of 2 kayaks through Paumanok Tours
  • 4 free tickets to The Rinx ice skating rink (accepted at both the Port Jeff and Hauppauge locations)

And of course we have our regular raffle baskets! Click here for Frequently Asked Questions AND a listing of the raffle prizes!

How old do I have to be to join the Teen Summer Reading Challenge?

The Teen Summer Reading Challenge accepts participants based on their grade, not age.  The Challenge is for anyone entering grades 7-12; so long as you will be in Grade 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12 in the fall of 2023, you are welcome to join the Challenge!  Teenagers who have graduated 12th grade cannot join the Teen Summer Reading Challenge, but are welcome to register for any Adult programs offered over the summer!
