Teen Summer Library Program


Teens will explore all things fairytale, fantasy, and myth this summer.

We will offer virtual/online events along with activity/craft kits.


Beginning May 3rd, Register for the Teen Summer Library program online, in person, or call the library at 515-465-3569.

Once you have registered, you will receive:

  • An Imagine Your Story drawstring backpack (while supplies last).
  • A Set of 2 Book Reviews (ask for more as needed) or submit book reviews online by clicking the Review Form to the left.
  • An Imagine Your Story bookmark

How Do I Participate?

Read or Listen to Books at Your Reading Level

Once you have read or listened to a book, fill out a book review form. Bring your review forms to the library or submit your reviews online. You will receive a free book after completing the first book review and after the second book review. You can continue to read to earn Grand Prize entries. Every review submitted will be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing.

There will be an end of the month drawing (May, June, July) from the book review entries for a chance to win a $20 Gift Card to the Perry Grand 3 Theatre.

Participate in Weekly Challenges

Due to lack of interest and attendance in virtual programs, we have discontinued the weekly virtual programs. We will implement a weekly challenge beginning in July. These will be posted on Wednesday afternoons and there will be an opportunity for prizes for participation.

Pop in Thursday @ Perry Public Library

Teens who are registered for the summer program will receive a free popcorn coupon when checking out books on Thursdays during May, June, and July. The coupon can be redeemed at the popcorn stand located outside of the library.

Choose Your Own Story Storywalk® @ Wiese Park

There will be a Choose Your Own Story for the months of June and July at the east end of Wiese Park.
