This week is Teen Read Week. This week is devoted to encouraging teens to read and gain literacy skills. To help draw teens into the library, we have a few events going on and all teens between 6th and 12th grade are invited! There is no specific time for these events. Just drop by the library and speak to Betsy to find out more information.
- Scavenger Hunt: Search for some cards related to the clues given and for each one you find, receive one entry in a raffle for the book the hunt is based on. All cards must be found between October 15th and 19th.
- Hoax Image/Photo: Using a photo the library provides, use a photo editor to make something cool/scary/funny/etc. appear in it. Participating earns you an entry into a raffle for a gift card for a small amount. This can be done at home if you have a program for it and there’s a program that Betsy can show you installed here. You do have to drop by to get the rules though. Entries will be posted on the teen blog.
- Blind Book Drawing: Choose a book title from a box of titles, read the book and do a brief review to earn an entry into the raffle for the gift card (same as the hoax image). The more books you read/review, the more entries you can get. Reviews may be posted on the teen blog and on boards at the library.
Note: Titles must be selected between October 15th and 19th. Reviews must be turned in by October 31st. Drawing will be held after that date.
