Summer Reading- 4 fun commercials

The Indianola Public Library is hosting a Teen Summer Reading program to reward those teens who take the time out of their busy summers to enjoy good books and their local library. See your library to find the services they provide to you!

Kitty takes a summer job only to realize he'd rather be at the Denver Public Library reading, competing in a DDR tournament, hanging out with librarians and so much more. Good kitty. Music by the Hot IQs!

A short PSA for ACPL's Summer Reading Program. Allen County Teens worked together to make this fun video

Charlotte area teens created this commercial to promote their Summer Reading Program. Check it out and sign up already!!! Also, visit PLCMC's teen website at or the Teen Loft @ ImaginOn's myspace account at
