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 can write reviews to share with others, and see what other kids are reading this summer. Follow this link for more information on using Beanstack.

Summer Reading Club is sponsored by Friends of Samuels Library, Kiwanis Club of Front Royal, Ledo Pizza, and Elks Lodge #2382.

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.
