The Berkeley Public Library has another great reading program for teens starting in just a couple weeks. If you’re going to read anyway, and who doesn’t over the long summer, you might as well collect some cool prizes along the way. They are giving a free book for each book review you write, and awesome weekly and grand prizes like movie passes, comic book gift cards, an acoustic guitar and even a Kindle Fire e-reader. I wish I could join, but I’m just a few decades too old!
Watch this blog for some great summer reading suggestions!
Friday June 15 – Saturday August 11, online or in person at any Berkeley Public Library. Sign-ups begin June 15th
How It Works
- Write a brief review and submit it to any Berkeley Public Library branch.
- Or, submit book reviews online.
- Turn in at least 1 review and receive a free book, a $5 Pegasus Books coupon, and an automatic entry in the weekly teen summer raffle!
- Each review entered after that will get you another book and another entry in the raffle.
- People who turn in 10 or more substantial reviews are eligible for the grand prize drawing.
- Our favorite reviews will be posted on the BPL Teen Blog.
Read books that are appropriate for your current reading level. Reviews of books, graphic novels, manga series and audiobooks count as entries into the Summer Reading Raffle. One review per manga series, please. Books may be read in any language. Players may sign up at only one Berkeley Public Library location and collect only one set of regular prizes during the summer. All regular prizes must be claimed in person by Saturday, September 1.
