Summer Reading Club

May 1st - August 26th

In the midst of the unusual circumstances we are facing, children, teens, and adults are challenged to Dig Deeper: Read, Investigate, Discover. Samuels Library’s Summer Reading Clubs are beginning early, on May 1st, and library patrons are invited to register for Summer Reading Club, log their books read, attend virtual programs, and collect badges online. When the library re-opens, come in to receive your prizes and enjoy some great programs. We look forward to seeing you then!

Teens earn a prize by completing one book each week.

Use Beanstack to log your books online, earn badges for books read and activities completed. You will also have access to themed guides for researching and enjoying topics of interest, write reviews to share with others, and see what other kids are reading this summer. Follow this link for more information on using Beanstack.

Teen Volunteers

If you are between the ages of 12 - 18 and are interested in helping in the Youth Services department of Samuels Library, please apply online using the form below, or pick up an application in person. Candidates will enjoy working with children and be willing to maintain neatness in the library and do light office work. As volunteers gain experience there may be opportunities to help with programming and reference. Volunteers are an important part of our Youth Services department and are greatly appreciated.
