The Seattle Public Library invites teens and adults to read as part of 2012 Summer Reading Program
The Seattle Public Library's 2012 Summer Reading Program kicks off Friday, June 1. The annual program, which continues through Sunday, Aug. 26, encourages everyone to read during the summer. This year's program celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 1962 Seattle World's Fair.
Teens and adults can sign up online and track their summer reading, rate and review books, earn badges and create their own avatar.
Teens are also invited to participate in the Library's Century 22: Book Scavenger Hunt. Participants will register for a free BookCrossing account online to get clues to find 1,000 books hidden throughout Seattle. Once the book has been found and read, it can be hidden again. Then post a clue on BookCrossing where the book was hidden and give a review or rating in the Library's online catalog. Participants can enter to win a Kindle e-book reader for every three books read and reviewed or rated.
Adults can also join the fun and enter their name to win a Kindle e-reader for every three books read and reviewed.
The 2012 Summer Reading Program is sponsored by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, Safeco Insurance Foundation, Friends of The Seattle Public Library, U.S. Bank, the Burke Museum, The Stocker Foundation and the Space Needle.
The Summer Reading Program also includes hundreds of free programs for children and families at Library locations. For more information, call The Seattle Public Library at 206-386-4636 or Ask a Librarian.
