Teen Summer Reading Club 2020!

A huge thank you to Jessica, whose artwork, Dispersion, won our Teen Art Contest! 

What is the Teen Summer Reading Club?

Each summer Burnaby Public Library runs the Teen Summer Reading Club throughout June, July, and August. Teens entering grades 8 to 12 in September are eligible to participate.
In light of ongoing physical distancing, BPL has envisioned this year’s Teen Summer Reading Club as a fun virtual program, that engages readers of all ages with ideas for things to read or do. TSRC starts Friday, June 15!

Whatever your genre, read what you love, and don’t apologize for it!

How do I participate?

There are 3 ways you can participate in this year's Teen Summer Reading Club:

1. Book picks and Bingo cards

2. Write Reviews!

Starting on June 15th, teens can participate in the Teen Summer Reading Club by writing reviews! This is a great opportunity for teens who love to write. Any book, movie, audiobook, graphic novel, or music album that is available at the library can be reviewed. Write three reviews and win a prize!*

You may submit as many reviews as you wish, but you are only eligible for 1 prize per month.

Submit your reviews here!

2. Art Poster Contest: Inclusion.

Create an eye-catching poster design to promote social justice and inclusion. Your poster should include a positive message that lets viewers know that the business they are entering is a safe space. We will select 3 posters to be printed and distributed at Burnaby Public Library and in various venues that choose to promote inclusion and acceptance.

Posters will be judged on original content and creativity, so show us what inclusion looks like to you. 
Selected posters will win gift cards from Spotify, DeSerres Art Supplies, and Indigo books.

Submit your poster here!
