Teens' Top Ten

Congratulations! We have been selected to be one of the Teens' Top Ten book clubs! That means for two years, we will be getting young adult books before they come out and distributing them to the Perks of Being a Teen Reader book club to read and review for the publishers, as well as nominate books for the yearly best-of poll. This is an amazing opportunity for us, and we'd like to make sure every reader between the ages of 12 and 18 who wants to be involved can be involved. Find out more by stopping by the library, and maybe checking out the official Teens' Top Ten website!

Book Chat Announcement

Join us on Wednesday, December 28th at 6:30pm, for a discussion on David Levithan & Rachel Cohn's holiday Young Adult adventure Dash & Lily's Book of Dares. Please call the library at 456-4181 if you need a copy of the book. Refreshments provided.
