Information for the 2019 Summer Reading Program will be posted in early 2019.
If you're between the ages of 12-18, visit your neighborhood branch of the Oakland Public Library or sign up online. You'll receive a free TeenZone notebook for registering!
Expore Your Library and Community
Did you know that you could get into museums for free most days? Pick up a Bay Area Hot Spots flyer and explore! You can receive stamps (in the form of points) on your virtual passport for visiting museums, skate parks, attending library programs, volunteering for the library, writing reviews, and so much more! Earn virtual and physical badges for all that you do this summer!
Here's How to Play
- For every 3 PASSPORT STAMPS (points) you collect, you'll receive a chance to enter into the raffle drawing. The more stamps you receive, the greater your chance to win one of our grand prizes of an iPad Mini, Chromebook, PS4, or even a Nintendo Switch! Collecting at least 3 PASSPORT STAMPS also automatically enters you into raffles for gift cards and event tickets.
- When you’ve collected 9 PASSPORT STAMPS you'll receive a free TeenZone backpack. Head to any local library to pick up this prize.
- When you’ve collected 18 PASSPORT STAMPS you'll receive your choice of either a pair of ear buds or a flash drive, also available for pick up at your local library.
Don't Forget About these Fun Events!
