Teens aged 12 through 18 in Phoenix also may register for a summer reading incentive program designed by teens for teens. “Shut Up and READ” is also under way now and runs through July 29.
 
Last year, more than 5,000 teens participated in the program developed by library teen councils throughout the city’s library system.
 
By reading books, teens can enter to win movie passes, lunches, sporting event tickets and more.
 
Participants who finish the program will receive an exclusive invitation to a VIP “Shut Up and READ” party.
 
This program is sponsored by a grant from the John F. Long Foundation, with additional funding from the Phoenix Public Library Foundation and the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.
