Fire & Ice @ your library  Young Adult Summer Reading Program 2024

YAS Summer Reading Program

Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice… we say it ends with pizza and bingo!

We may not be reaping you for the Hunger Games, sorting you into factions, or sending you into the maze – but we’re preparing for the end of the world at the library this summer! Whether it ends in fire or ice, YAS SRP 2024 is going have an action-packed summer – while we watch Jim the Raccoon survive it all. We’ll be kicking it off on the Burke County Courthouse Square with a “Kickoff to Summer Party,” and then playing games, watching movies, participating in activities, making crafts, and (of course) reading right up until we reach the end of it all – Pizza and Bingo Night. Track your program participation and reading to be entered in to win awesome prizes – including gift cards, Lego sets, gift baskets, and the chance to take home Jim the Raccoon!

Register and track your participation and points on bcpls.readsquared.com or on the FREE READSquared app! For every book you read, program you attend, and activity you complete – you can track it all on your READSquared account and be entered to win prizes!

YAS Programming is limited to rising middle, middle, and high school students.
For questions, program registration, or to get more information contact Lizzie at 828-764-9273 or by email at lizzie.whisnant at burkenc.org!
