Teens Read-It-Forward with “Miles Morales: Spider-Man”

June 20, 2019 | Youth Services

If there’s a teenager in your life, then you’ve probably heard a lot about Miles Morales, Spider-Man, and “Into the Spider-Verse” over the last few months. This super-popular character, comic book, and movie are the genesis of the new Read-It-Forward book for teens this summer — Miles Morales: Spider-Man by Jason Reynolds.

All libraries in the Upper Hudson Library System (UHLS) will be handing out copies. The goal is to get teens to read the book and pass it along to their friends to spread the joy of reading.

The books don’t have to be checked out from the library. At the end of the summer, we hope all copies end up on home bookshelves!

At APL, we’re also hosting a few Spider-Man-themed activities and movie screenings:
