PLNL Teen Summer Reading Program

It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.

Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

This summer, join us at the library as we get off the beaten path and explore new and fun ideas! We’ll have a ton of new activities, from movie nights, to a baking club to Dungeons and Dragons sessions. In addition to our in-house programming, don’t forget to explore New London and the surrounding towns with our ongoing summer reading program for a chance to win prizes. Fun opportunities to learn and grow are just waiting for you, if you just read off the beaten path.

Sign up here, at plnl.readsquared.com , or at the desk in the Teen Activity Room!
