Reading Rocks @ the TeenSpot!
Get ready to rock and READ! The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County wants you to get with the beat this summer and jam with our 39th Annual Summer Reading Program! From June 1 to July 31, everyone—preschoolers, kids, teens, and grown-ups—is invited to join in the fun at a Library location near you.
Your family will flip for the prizes we have on the stage! Complete the First Level of the program to receive a book. Keep reading to earn more prizes! Readers of all ages are eligible for chances to win family four-packs to a Cincinnati Reds game or tickets for performances by the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra. Be the lucky winner of a random drawing at your Library location, and you could also win a grand prize! A grand prize will be awarded to one winner in all four age categories at each of our 41 locations. Teens are eligible to win an iPod Touch, a $25 Gold Star Gift Certificate, and symphony tickets!
Our line up of programs will keep you and all of your family members reading until the stage lights fade. Save the dates for these programs you won’t want to miss at the TeenSpot!

Summer Reading has other great benefits for your family, too. Studies show that library summer reading programs can help prevent the loss of kids’ reading skills due to time away from school. Plus, by participating in Summer Reading along with your children, parents become reading role models. This is one of the best ways to get your kids excited about reading.
Sign up as a family and log your hours online or print out a log and track your reading on paper.
It’s free, fun, and easy! Join the band today by registering online at www.CincinnatiLibrary.org/SummerRead/.
