Finals are wrapping up so I think we can officially say that summer is here! Registration began for our Make It summer reading program on Monday and we’ve already had over 50 teens register. Don’t fret – it’s not too late to get registered and start earning stamps on your MakerPad. It’s simple: either come into the Hub and ask one of our awesome teen services staff or register online. Once you have your MakerPad created, you’re ready to start earning stamps. Wondering how you earn stamps? There are five different categories.

MAKER: Register and attend one of our film making, DIY or maker programs.
DIY-ER: Drop in to the Hub and complete one of our Do It Yourself Kits. June’s DIY Kit begins on the 10th. We’ll have 3 different projects throughout the month: Collage Your Favorite Maker, Quick & Easy iPhone/Pod Speaker, and DIY Wax Stamper. We’ll also have designated times (stay tuned for details) where you can take apart an object on our Take Apart Cart.
BOOK REVIEWER: Submit at least three book reviews to ahmlteen@gmail.com.
ONLINE CONNECTOR: Follow us and post something to at least one of our social media accounts – Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or comment on our website. A submission to the Tweet a Tale contest counts for a stamp!
FILMMAKER: Make and submit a film to the 7th Annual Teen Film Fest.

Once you earn 3 stamps, you’ll receive a totally rad finisher stamp on your MakerPad, an extremely odd prize, and be eligible for a $50 gift card to Etsy or Maker Shed. Sounds fun, right? Hope to see you in the Hub this summer!
