Teens urged to read this summer

DOWNEY - Downey teens are invited to sign-up for a summer reading program at the Downey City Library that runs until Aug. 1."Express Yourself" is the theme of this year's program, which encourages teens to read for pleasure or to get a head start on books for the next school year. Students ages 13-19 may join the program, win prizes and attend special events, including a July 11 excursion to the Grammy Museum. Teens who complete the program will receive a free book and are eligible to attend a pizza party July 31. "This year's program encourages teens to show their creativity through music, drawing and comedy with three additional events during July," said Julia Butler, young adult librarian at the library. The program is supported financially by the Friends of the Downey City Library and community donations. For more information, visit the library or call (562) 904-7360, ext. 132.
