1.You can print your Reading Log here or pick it up at the Fiction/AV/Teen desk on the second floor.

2.Stop by the desk on the second floor to sign up and choose your team – Narwhal or Llama.

3. After you read your first book, come to the desk to get coupons for tasty treats and to clear your library fines.

4. Come back to the desk again after reading two more books OR attending two programs OR reading one book and attending one program. You will get a free book!

5. Throughout the rest of the summer stop by the desk any time you read a book or attend a program, and you will be entered into the drawings for our weekly prizes and grand prizes.

Meanwhile, he’s trying his best to capture the attention of Julia, the freshman goddess. In the process, Scott manages to become involved in nearly everything the school has to offer. So while he tries to find his place in the confusing world of high school, win Julia’s heart, and keep his sanity, Scott will be recording all the details for his sibling’s—and your—enjoyment.
