Summer at the Library!

The school year is almost over, which means that it’s time for summer fun at Spartanburg County Public Libraries! :D

Sign up for Teen Summer Reading, and make the minutes count!


Every hour you read and every teen event you attend gets you one step closer to earning an official TSR T-Shirt and possibly winning awesome weekly prizes like gift cards to Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, GameStop, Target, QT, and more! Every completed game card will be entered to win one of two grand prizes—a PSP Vita or a flatscreen TV! Get started ASAP (once summer starts), because the more you read, the more chances you have to win!


Teen Summer Reading runs from May 31st-July 31st and is for teens ages 12-18 or entering grades 7-12.


When you’re taking a break from reading, you can take some photos for Photobook!



Photobook is a fun annual project in which 50 teens are asked to photograph Spartanburg as they see it. They’re challenged to explore the county and take the best photos they possibly can with the disposable cameras provided. To make it even more fun, there are multiple ways to win prizes!


The Best Overall Photo will win a $100 Barnes & Noble gift card. The Best Spartanburg-specific Photo and Most Unusual Photo will win $75 Barnes & Noble gift cards. We’ll also give a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card to the teen who turns in the Best Decorated Camera!


Photobook runs from May 31st-June 30th, and we have 50 cameras to give out on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information and to request a camera online, visit this page: http://www.infodepot.org/zTeen/SCPLteen-Photo2013.asp 


Each branch will also host fun summer programs just for teens! To learn more about these, check out our events calendar.


We hope to see you at the library this summer!
