Teen Time

So you picked up the Summer Reading calendar and you saw that Thursday afternoons was a program called "Teen Time". Did you then wonder what "Teen Time" was? The answer may surprise you.

"Teen Time" is designed as a specific time for teens, going into grade 6 and up, to come to the library. During this hour time block, we will have a variety of activities for teens. Last night, we had an ice snack, a small craft and a game of Monopoly. Next week we are thinking of playing a card game. We might have another small craft.

The idea of "Teen Time" is to have a time where you can come hang out, see your friends, talk about what you are reading or listening to and what you might like to see the library purchase.

So stop by next Thursday from 4pm to 5 pm for "Teen Time"

summer reading prizes

Remember that you can keep track of your summer reading using our online program. This is the link. To collect your prizes, see the staff person in the Teen Spot.

Four every four (4) hours that you read this summer, you can get a "prize!" Did you know that you can save up your prizes for a bigger prize? So instead of taking fourteen (14) small prizes, you can add up your "prizes" and get a coupon for a small frosty from Wendy's. Likewise, instead of taking twenty six (26) small prizes you can add all your "prizes" into a new book.

We also have prizes from McDonald's, Arcadia Sports, Bee-Tee's and Walmart as well as small prizes like rings, pens, and more temporary tattoos than you can imagine. Keep up the reading and get to the Teen Spot soon!

"rain rain go away"/ "here comes the sun"

The paperback book sale on June 14th was quite watery. Because of this we didn't have a great turn out of customers. But never fear, we will meet sometime in August to play a Bake Sale for September. Our previous bake sale was very successful. Check back here and look for signs in the library about our meeting as well as the time and date of the Bake Sale.

For now, we can get excited about summer and the events we are having at the library. Remember Wednesday and Thursday afternoons are all for teens. Wednesday is Reader's Theater, for teens who are theatrical. Thursdays, starting July 17th, will be Teen Time. This is an informal time for you to come play board games, do crafts and eat snacks. Remember to keep track of your summer reading in our online program. You can find the link at our website.
