We have many fun opportunities for our Teen and Tweens to learn, grow, or just hang out at the Fonda Public Library! Because of Covid, our games, Makerspace items, Lego Crazy Contraption Kits, Lego Chain Reaction Kits, and VR Headsets are put away, but we hope that we will be able to get them out soon.
Our Summer Reading Program is unmatched, providing opportunities for our youth to participate in fun and learning, and to prevent that dreaded "Summer Slide"! Because of Covid, we've had many changes, but there are many ways you can participate, among them are:
*Tween Movie & Book Club - Participants pick up their weekly packet Monday or Wednesday, then participate in the Zoom meeting on Thursday afternoon.
We all watch the movie on our own time, then meet Thursday to discuss it and do a fun craft or activity. This is a great way to see all your friends, while social
distancing! If you do not have computer access, just pick up your weekly packet and we will provide complete instructions for you to do the craft/activity at home!
*Teen Reading Bingo - In the month of August, our teens and adults play Reading Bingo! Earn great prizes by doing simple, fun activities!
*Reading Incentive Program - Read the books of your choice, keep track of your minutes, and earn great prizes! There are seven Reading Levels, which include the
Level 1 - Level Prize and a Casey's Certificate (choice of an ice cream cone, a cookie, a donut, a slice of pizza or a fountain drink)
Level 2 - Level Prize and a Subway Certificate
Level 3 - Level Prize and a Rialto Theater Ticket
Level 4 - Level Prize and a Pizza Ranch Certificate
Level 5 - Level Prize and 2 Iowa Cubs Tickets
Level 6 - Level Prize and a Blank Park Zoo Pass
Level 7 - Level Prize and a King's Pointe Waterpark Pass
For more information, please contact the Library.
*Weekly Challenges - Throughout the summer we have fun challenges that you may complete as an individual, with friends, or as a family. Check in to see what they are
for the week - you have all week to complete them!
*Big Prize Drawing - At the end of the summer we have a Big Prize Drawing to celebrate! Every time you pick up a packet for your Zoom meeting, get a Bingo, reach a level for reading incentive or complete a weekly challenge you earn an entry, so participate in as often or as little as you like!
We are always looking for fun ways to get together at the Library, so if you have any ideas, please contact one of our helpful staff members!
