Teen Summer Takeover 2021

Hello and welcome to the 2021 Teen Summer Takeover!

Each year we host a 6-week long summer program just for teens aged 13-18 where you can complete challenges and activities under the four categories of


  • Pick up a challenge passport to find out what challenges there are
  • Each challenge you complete is worth a number of raffle tickets that can be entered into weekly prize draws.
  • Some challenges have weekly timers (presented in order of Weeks 1-6 in the passport) and must be redeemed in that week for raffle tickets
  • General challenges can be completed at ANY time during the TST and added to draws to boost your chance at prizes
  • Weekly prize draws will be held at the end of each week between the following Tuesday or Wednesday
  • To redeem your completed challenges for tickets, you can visit us in person and show a staff member, OR email teens@pentictonlibrary.ca with a list/required photos!
  • At the end of the TST we host a final GRAND PRIZE DRAW!


This year we will also feature DOUBLE TROUBLE!

Certain challenges and activities have been marked with a red "double trouble" logo, which means they are worth DOUBLE the raffle tickets listed. Some activities have rules (complete a certain way) to get the extra points, and some have no strings attached, just tons of tickets up for the taking!

Double trouble also means if you sign up a friend for the TST, you BOTH will get 5 tickets each for any weekly draw - AND you can sign up more than one friend and get 5 tickets each time!
