NORWAY — The Norway Memorial Library’s Collaborative Summer Library Program “Spark a Reaction” will offer a variety of ways young adults can have fun while reading, writing and creating.

Beginning July 2, students entering grades 7-12 in the fall can participate in 8-1-2, the reading and creating part of Spark A Reaction. They may also take advantage of Teen Nights at the library on Wednesday evenings.

8-1-2 (sounds like “ate one too”) offers eight ways for teens to earn opportunities to win pizza and ice cream. There is one winner every week, sometimes two winners. Heavy readers and science types might choose the Teen Tuesday Trivia challenge heard on WOXO, as well as keep traditional reading logs.

Traveling readers, who cannot make it into the library, may send NML a postcard with the title and author of the book they are reading or may post a “book beard selfie” on Facebook.

Come into the library, add lines to the ongoing story board, cause a reaction with doodles, poetry, prose and art, or be one of the lucky ones to find a duck. Teens can earn extra points with Random Acts of Kindness.

The library is pleased to present Jack Gentempo’s film, “Library Rap.” Find it on the Norway Library Teen Page on Facebook and on the Norway Memorial.

Pizza Hut and Norway Soft Serve have provided gift certificates for summer reading program incentives.
