Teen Read Week
Teen Read Week is an initiative by the American Library Association to get more teens to read. The 2011 theme is “Picture It @ your library.” Starting Sunday, October 16, come to the Library and enter your name in the drawing for the Teen Read Week treasure chest. One entry per person, per day through Saturday, October 22. Since Rick Riordan has already released his latest book, Son of Neptune, we thought we’d make sure you are familiar with Rick’s more popular works by showing the movie “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief” (rated PG). If you are not heading out of town for fall break, you can earn an extra chance to win the treasure chest by watching the movie (bring your own lawn chair) on Friday, October 21 at 1:00 p.m. We’re pairing the movie with a unique activity afterwards… so come for the movie and stay for the activity! Registration is recommended and just a reminder, this program is only for teens in grades six and up. See you soon!
