Teen Summer Reading Challenge

Can you read FIFTY hours?
(It’s easier than it sounds!)


Pick up your reading log (and a few books!) from the Teen Republic!

June and July
Each time you read, record it on your log; note what you read and for how long you read!

July and August

Once you reach 50 hours, turn your reading log in to the Teen Republic and reap the rewards!

Aquatic Escape Experience


Join us for an Aquatic Escape Experience: an escape room with a fin-tastic theme! 

As seating is limited, signups are required; signup here. Please note that signups open 4 weeks prior to the event, and close 48 hours prior to the event. This event is in-person and has sessions for grades 3-5 and 6-12, free of charge. 



Ever wanted to see your artwork as a cool poster? Looking for ways to show what the library means to you? Here's your chance! 

  • Create an original 2D artwork
  •  Artwork must include the phrase “Oceans of Possibilities,” feature that subject, and be appropriate for public display
  • Artwork will be accepted digitally in June and July;  limit one entry per person; submit files to Vanessa.Hartel@co.tom-green.tx.us 
  • We will print your artwork as an ~18x24 poster and it will be displayed in the Teen Republic
  • You can pick up your poster from the Teen Republic in August


This program is for Teen Republic patrons (grades 6-12), free of charge.
