Did you know that the American Library Association dedicates a whole week just to teens and their reading? Well, they do, and this year Teen Read Week will be held from October 16-22. We’ve got a few things up our sleeves to celebrate here at NPL.
First, make sure to keep an eye on this blog for a new post every day during the week. I’ll be highlighting all kinds of great reads for teens, as well as opportunities for teens to hang out and get involved at the Normal Public Library.
Second, we’re having a “Guess the Title” competition, for a chance to win some more great prizes. If you find yourself in the NPL teen section next week, look around for the posted pictures of popular teen books published in the last few years. We’ve removed the author’s name and the title. If you think you can guess what the books are, stop by the front desk to pick up an entry form to fill out. At the end of the week, we’ll do a drawing from the correct answers to pick our prize winners!
Of course, in addition to our Teen Read Week contest, we’ve always got lots of great books and reading suggestions for teens, both here at the library and on our website. Just stop in and ask for me (I’m Kristi, your friendly teen librarian) or pick up a booklet full of reading suggestions from the teen area. Or, if you’d rather check things out online, go here for all the great reading ideas you could possibly want. Happy reading!
