10 in 10 Summer Reading Program for Middle Schoolers starts today!

10 in 10: The Summer Reading Program for rising Middle Schoolers
at the Wellesley Free Library starts today, June 24th!

On your first visit to the Wellesley Free Library this summer, please pick up some book entry forms.  What you read is up to you!  Required reading for school counts!  So do graphic novels, ebooks, audio books, and non-fiction!  Check out the collections in the Quigley Youth Room and our booklists for more ideas. 
For every book you read, fill out an entry form (available in the Children’s and Youth Rooms) and put it in the can on the Children’s Department Desk.  Away most of the summer? You can also submit forms online on the Teens Page at or email the information to 

If you read TEN books by the end of the summer, you will be eligible for our grand prize drawing for an ipad mini on August 26th! The name will be pulled from those participants who read at least TEN books.  We will also have drawings for smaller prizes every other week, so read early and often! You don’t have to be present to win.
