How's your summer going? Don't let it pass without a visit to Book Café! This Wednesday night, June 29, we're having another session at Buena Vista Branch at 7:00 p.m.
Our special guest will be young adult author Mary McCoy, who wrote a noir murder mystery for teens called Dead to Me. Right now, we only have one copy available for check-out (at the Central Library), but more copies are expected soon; plus, you could win a copy at the event itself!
As usual, we will hang out and chat, partake of coffee house treats, and do a little book-talking, as well as getting to hear from, and talk to, Mary McCoy! We hope you'll join us!
Then on Thursday night, June 30, at 7:00 p.m. at the Central Library, we'll be showing the movie Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. What could be better than an awesome free movie, complete with air conditioning, snacks, and a prize drawing at the end of the evening?
If you're a teenager who is not yet signed up for Game On!, the teen summer reading program, what are you waiting for? There's no commitment if you do sign up--you can attend one thing, everything, or nothing! You can keep a reading log, or write book reviews, or do the Trivia Challenge, or all of the above! But if you are NOT signed up, then you're not eligible to win prizes, and we have some great ones. Three (or more) drawings at each event or program, plus weekly drawings for reading log and book review readers and writers! Gift cards, movie tickets, and more...
Go here, fill out the very short form, and you're in! Then stop by any Burbank Public Library reference desk to pick up your swag bag.
Other events coming up this summer: two more Book Cafés (with two more amazing guest writers), a Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit Tournament, and our finale, an after-hours lock-in murder mystery game called HALFTIME HORROR. That alone is worth signing up for!
Our wonderful, creative TAB (Teen Advisory Board) has been hard at work writing the scripts and creating the clues for you to find the murder weapon, interview the suspects, and figure out whodunnit. There will be food, photo ops, and a grand prize drawing at the end of the evening for two tickets to Universal Studios!
All these events are for teens in grades 7-12 only. Check out the brochure for the entire summer, and join us at the library!
