Congratulations to the 95 finishers of the teen summer reading program! Check out some pictures of the finale party here:
The Teen Summer Reading Program started on June 15th and over 100 teens have already signed up! Have you?
In the summer reading program you'll earn prizes for reading, get to attend fun teens-only events every week, and have a chance to win grand prizes like a Kindle Fire, passes to SkyZone, or a Minecraft foam pickaxe.
The teen program is open to students entering grade 7 through 2013 high school graduates. To sign up drop by the teen desk or the adult reference desk. See you soon!

The Library is holding a manga drawing contest for teens! Entry forms are at the Reference Desk and in the Teen Area. The deadline for entries is January 15th. Drawings need to be on 8.5 X 11 sheets of paper. Only one submission is allowed per person. We'll be displaying the pictures in the teen area and at A to Z cards & comics for people to vote on their favorite. There'll be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner for judges' choice, and an overall people's choice winner (which will become the new background to the teen website).
