Read for pleasure, read to win

June 17, 2008|By HANNAH TUSSING / Pulse Correspondent

Would you like to be rewarded for pleasure reading? This summer you can. You might know that the library offers a summer reading club for grade school students, but did you know that they also offer a program for teens?

This year, the teen program is called Metamorphosis. For every hour you read and log on your "passport," you move two spaces on the Metamorphosis game board. You also can earn points by attending library events, (like movie nights and the program's kickoff party Friday, June 20), writing reviews of books, magazines or games, and by answering weekly Web questions.

When you reach the halfway point, you receive a small prize. If you reach the end, you will be entered in a raffle for a $20 Target gift card (one winner per library branch) and a countywide raffle for a digital camera. If you finish by Aug. 22, you also will receive tickets to that night's Suns game.

Friday's kickoff party is at Washington County Free Library in downtown Hagerstown. There will be pizza, live local music, raffles, door prizes and more. For more information, go to wcflchildren@washcolibrary.org or call 301-739-3250, ext. 132, or visit the library itself and ask a librarian for more details and how to sign up.
