NORWAY- Middle school age teens (entering seventh through nineth grade) are invited to “Joust Read” this summer by participating in a Summer Reading Program through Aug. 17.

The program is sponsored by the Harrison Village Library, Norway Memorial Library, Paris Public Library and Waterford Library.

Registration for the program is under way at the sponsoring libraries. The program gives teens an opportunity to read for prizes as well as to take part in free special events offered throughout the summer. Reading points will be awarded based on the Accelerated Reading Program used in the middle school. Information on point levels and prizes are explained in flyers available at the participating libraries.

There will be a Midsummer’s Night of Activities from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 20, at the middle school offering reading program participants the opportunity to play Tafl – a medieval form of chess; design a catapult and compete for the longest throw; write Haiku; design a heraldic coat of arms or design an illuminated page.

The Wrap-Up Event on Aug. 17th will include a pizza party, a Life Story Writing Workshop taught by Pamela Chodosh and the grand prize drawing. It will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m.M at the OHMS.

All events are open to teens registered in the reading program. Prizes will be given for each reading level and each time readers attend an event they can enter a chance to win the grand prize.
