Are you up for the challenge?
This summer, the Woburn Public Library is challenging teens & tweens, grades 6-12, to explore ten diverse types of books to push them outside their reading comfort zone. Categories include award-winners, recommendations from friends & family, and graphic novels (just to name a few). For each category read, participants will receive an entry ticket for a grand prize. Students who complete the challenge of all ten categories will receive a mystery prize bundle.

Tracking with Beanstack
The library is using the Beanstack app to help families track reading on a mobile device. Beanstack allows parents and kids to log reading from a computer OR a mobile device. You can download their FREE app called Beanstack Tracker for your iOS or Android phone or tablet. Be sure to choose “School, Library, or Bookstore” when selecting an organization type and search for “Woburn Public Library.” Signing up through our site will ensure that Beanstack is free of charge. If you need assistance downloading or using this app, please email the Teen Librarian.
Woburn Public School students are encouraged to read throughout the summer. While there are no required texts, the WPS English Language Arts Department has provided lists of suggested titles for students looking for recommendations. Students are welcome to read other genres, series, and authors of their choosing. The main thing: READ!
The Woburn Public Library is holding copies of all of the WPS suggested titles in the Teen Room. These titles can only be checked out for 2 weeks, with no renewals. Only Woburn residents may reserve holds on them.
“Tails and Tales” Statewide Summer Library Program is sponsored by the Woburn Public Library, the Woburn Public Library Foundation, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and the Institute of Museum and Library Services with support from the National Women’s Hockey League team Boston Pride.
