The library is on Discord! For grades 6-12. Join other teens and help us create a space where we can game together, hang out, share memes, play D&D and Video Games, watch Anime, discuss Manga, & K-Pop, and talk about books in our Read, Rant, & Rave Book Club. To join our Discord, please fill out this Google form with your Discord username and Discord Tag number, which is the three numbers following the # after your username, so that we can invite you to our server.
Or, Email Shelly for an invite to the Discord server @ email@example.com
Discord is a free chat app that allows people to join servers to discuss a variety of topics. The library’s server is a private server that will be monitored by our librarians.
If you don’t have a Discord account, go to discord.com, to create your free account that will allow you to join in the fun.
If you have a Facebook account, you can register by joining our new Facebook Group: Syracuse Summer Teens.
Keep track of your books and pages read and post them on the Facebook page. You can do that by posting a picture of the book you’re reading & how much you’ve read. Or you can write down in a notebook what you’ve read and post that picture of that notebook page. Feel free to comment on each other's books & see if you can find something new & good to read!
If you do not have internet/a Facebook account, registration forms will be provided with a small notebook for pick-up at the library. You can then keep track of your books and pages read in the notebook. When you’ve finished the program, you can put the notebook in the book drop.
Read 1200 pages to earn a book of your choice. Read 1800 or more pages and earn a book and t-shirt of your choice. If you read over 2200 pages, you can earn a book and t-shirt, plus food and drink coupons. Books and t-shirts will be ordered by July 31st. You’ll be notified when books and t-shirts come in then you can pick up your prizes.
Here are the options for the fantasy map craft! Let Shelly know which one you would like to do by calling 574-457-3022, messaging social media, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

The world may look very different this summer, but Summer Reading Program at the Syracuse Public Library is going to be as fun as ever!
The program begins June 1 and will finish up July 31.
All kids – birth through rising 7th graders – are invited to participate in our Kids Summer Reading Program.
It is as easy as can be - just get a copy of the reading gamecard.
Gamecards will be available everywhere beginning June 1. We’ll bring it out to your car at the library, you may download it from the library’s website and social media sites, or pick it up at various businesses throughout our community.
For our youngest friends – those who are not yet reading on your own - you simply color in a circle on the gamecard each time you share a book with someone.
When 25 circles are colored in give us a call to arrange to pick up a loot bag filled with some cool stuff.
Fill in another 25 circles and call us to come and pick up your very own book to keep!
For all kids who are reading on your own – whether early readers or chapter books – you will get a gamecard with choices of lots of different fun activities to complete.
Do 10 of 15 activities on the Level 1 gamecard and call us to arrange pick up of your loot bag filled with cool prizes.
For those who feel like going on to the Level 2 gamecard, after 5 of the 10 (more challenging) activities are completed, give us a call to arrange to come and pick up your very own book to keep!
You can tap on the pictures below to save them (or screenshot them). Or download the pages here to print. You can also get them physically around the community or pickup from the library! Return in the bookdrop (we'd suggest in an envelope) or message our Facebook/Instagram with the completed pages!
1000 Books for Kindergarten
It’s easy; just read one book a night, you will have read 365 per year. The child will receive a small prize or a book for every 100 books read!
