Summer Reading Program for Teens

We’re busy getting ready for Summer Reading 2018. The theme will be Libraries Rock!

The Teen Summer Reading Program at the Marlborough Public Library encourages adolescents going into grades 6-12 to read, use library resources, and participate in library activities.


No registration required!  To earn a scratch ticket, all you need to do is check out an item from the library. Books, manga, DVDs, video games, magazines— everything counts!  You can get one ticket at the circulation desk per day. Each time you attend a library program, you get an extra ticket, too!


If your ticket is an “Instant Winner,” you get to pick something from the prize box: choose from a selection of books, earbuds, candy, and more! If your ticket says “Grand Prize Raffle,” fill out your contact information and place the ticket in the raffle box for the Grand Prize of your choice.

Grand Prizes:

  • A pair of wireless headphones
  • A DIY Slime Starter Set
  • A mini marquee light box and a set of emoji pillows
  • A ticket to Treetop Adventures in Canton
  • A 60-minute Jump Pass to Altitude Trampoline Park in Marlborough
  • A $50 gift card (the winner will choose from a list of options)


Our calendar is packed with fun, free events throughout the summer. We’ve got arts and crafts, food, music, and movie screenings just for teens in grades 6-12. Visit our calendar to learn more about these events and to sign up for those that require registration. Remember, you get an extra scratch ticket each time you attend a program!

Looking for volunteer hours? The library doesn’t have individual volunteer positions available, but we do offer group volunteer events a few times a month. Check here to see what’s coming up!
