Anyone raising a tweenager (10-14 years old) knows it’s complicated – North Platte Public Library understands. This tab is intended to help clarify how this very important age group can participate in Summer Reading 2022 at North Platte Public Library.
Tween Tuesday programming (ages 10-14) is suspended for the summer.
Ages 10 and 11 are invited to participate in the Children’s Summer Reading Program Events.
Ages 12 and 13 are welcome to participate in the Teen Summer Reading Program Events.
Birthdate clarification – we aren’t hardline – a mature 11 turning 12 by August can be considered 12 for the programs and a 9 year old turning 10 before August can participate in the reading challenges as a 10 year old. However, to be fair to the kids and staff, please realize we program for ages 12 – 18 and ages 11 and under. We don’t want someone too young or too old to have bad experiences. See, we told you it’s complicated.
Ages 10 and 11 are special – they can participate in the Children’s Reading Challenge by logging minutes read on the free ReaderZone app available in your mobile store using the code 21d39, paper logs are also available. Prizes are awarded each time they meet a reading goal of 360 minutes or multiplier (720, 1080, etc.). Once a reading goal is met, they can pick two (2) prizes, a gift certificate and a book. They will then be entered into a grand prize drawing for the bike. Reading logs must be completed by the drawing date of July 22, 2022. Need not be present to win.
