Congratulations to the Doodle Bots from Franklin Middle School, the winners of the 2015 Battle of the Books!
Will you be entering 9th grade or above in the fall? Do you like kids and reading? The Youth Services Department is currently seeking teen volunteers to help for our Summer Reading Program, Be a Hero, READ! Interested volunteers are asked to commit to two or more hours per week doing a variety of tasks. This is a great opportunity to earn service hours for your school or community organization while you have free time during the summer! Applications are available in the library or online; please check out the application for more information, including dates for training sessions, and return completed applications to the Youth Services Desk.
Congratulations to Evelyn Dlugokenski for her winning entry, "The Peepnic" in this year's Peeps Photography contest!

Students in 7th-12th grade are invited to submit their best short story, poem, drawing, or photograph for our annual Writing and Art contest. You'll have a chance to win one of four $25 Visa gift cards!
Entries are due by November 30th and entry forms are available in the teen area of the library. Good luck!
