There’s plenty to do at the library this summer for teens, as well as for younger children. Kent Regional Library, 212 Second Ave. N., has the following programs available for teens and “tweens”:

• Read Three, Get One Free Summer Edition: Teens can read three books, write three short, thoughtful reviews, and earn a new book from the library. Throughout June, July and August, teens who complete reviews can enter monthly prize drawings, as well as a grand-prize drawing at the end of the summer for a new laptop. Example reviews are available online at www.kcls.org/read3.

• Book Explorers Book Club: This club for ages 9 to 15 meets at 4:30 p.m. the third Wednesday of the month to enjoy snacks and talk about books. The book for June 18 is “Dragon’s Keep” by Janet Lee Carey.

• Game On!: Teens are welcome to drop in from 3:15 to 5 p.m. the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month for a group video gaming session. The library has Dance Dance Revolution, as well as games for GameCube and Nintendo Wii. The program is open to ages 12 to 18.

• YouTube Video Book Review Contest: Through July, teens can enter this contest by creating a short video review or trailer about their favorite book, and uploading it to YouTube with the tag “VBRkcls2008.” The library will have a video camera and laptop available for teens to use for the contest. The top video of the summer will win a flip camera, and three runners up will win MP3 players.
