St. Tammany libraries start summer program

St. Tammany Parish readers 12 to 18 are invited to join the summer reading program “Beneath the Surface” at their local public library. The program continues through July 17.

Register online at and click on the Summer Reading icon or register at the library.

Teens will keep track of the minutes they have spent reading, and when a goal of 12 hours has been reached, they will receive their choice of a free beach bag or a USB flash drive.

There will also be three drawings for those who have reached the 12-hour goal for $50 gift cards to a local retailer of their choice and a drawing for an Acer Tablet.

Many other programs and activities are happening at the library. Check or ask at your library.
