    I was wondering how i can sign up for this book program and how I keep track of the books I read so I can enter the raffle. I would love to join, but is it online or do i need to go in person?

      Hello! You can join the Summer Reading program in person, in the Edge teen center on the first floor of the library. The Edge is open Monday-Thursday 1-8 pm, Friday 1-6 pm, and Saturday and Sunday 1-5 pm. Hope to see you soon.

      Hello, yes, the Edge Summer Reading program is only for teens who will be in grades 7-12 this fall. Your rising 6th grader would be welcome to participate in the Trove Summer Reading program, though! You can find more information here.
