Summer reading isn’t just for kids. Anyone can learn something new and have fun while doing it this summer.

That’s why we have a summer reading program specifically for teens, Spark a Reaction. You can sign up for it at any of our branches. It’s dedicated to weird science and fun experiments.

Starting June 11, we’ll be having Weird Science Wednesdays every week in June outside of our Main Branch. We’re kicking it off with their own version of Mythbusters. We’ll see if we can make a Coke-Mentos volcano, if toast always lands butter-side down and test other popular myths.

The week after that, we’ll use Sun Paper to show how pre-digital photography worked. (Yes, there is such a thing as pre-digital photography.)

Finally, on June 25, we’ll experiment with the science of weather, which means you can help us make miniature versions of tornadoes, volcanoes and tsunamis.

You can sign up for any and all of these programs on our website or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 215.

Every teen who participates in our Spark a Reaction, either by reading or coming to Mentor Library programs, has a chance to win prizes. Those  include gift certificates from Retroland Toys, Zoup, Great Lakes Game Emporium, Tryst Salon & Spa and our grand prize, a Nook eReader from Barnes & Noble.

And the more you read, the better chance you have of winning.

So come to the library. Read something new. Learn something fun. Spark a reaction.
