Game On!

Today is the first official day of the Teen Summer Reading Program! If you haven't yet signed up, please go to our website and click on the "sign up" button for summer reading, then choose "teen."

Once you have signed up, come to the reference desk at any of our three branches, and the librarian there will give you a "swag bag" containing a brochure (with all the details), your reading log, your Book Café "passport," a Game On! Trivia Challenge, and some bonus fun stuff (pencil, eraser, toy).

We have two live events this week:

Book Café!
Yes, it's the first session of four, and yes, you want to come! Put it on your calendar for Wednesday nights at 7:00 at Buena Vista! (Not every week--check the calendar on your brochure.) Hang out with your friends and book-talk, while enjoying coffee-house treats! Meet young adult authors--we have a different one for each of the sessions except the first! And if you come to three of the four sessions, you get a free book of your choice, from our fabulous stash. We bought a bunch of new books as Book Café prizes, so don't miss out on random drawings and book rewards!

Teen Movie!
This Friday at 3:30 at the Central Library, we're showing ANT-MAN. Sit in a room with your friends in air-conditioned comfort, enjoy some snacks, watch the movie, and hang around for the prize drawing at the end! You must be registered for Game On in order to be entered, so be sure to take care of that right away!

Remember that starting today, you can READ, WRITE, and WIN by keeping a reading log or writing book reviews. The book reviews you write online (go back to the interface where you signed up), but you bring your reading log to the library's reference desk to fill out tickets that go in the jar. Every FRIDAY we draw names, and nine lucky readers (three at each branch) win such things as a $5 gift card to Starbucks, Yogurtland, Target, and more, or a movie ticket, or something else cool! Every OTHER Friday, six people win bigger prizes for writing book reviews! You can read about it here.

Also, don't overlook the "Game On" Trivia Challenge, a copy of which is included in your "swag bag." You can get some pointers that will help you solve it here. There will be prizes for our top performers on that as well (which we'l give out at our finale on July 23).

Here's a brochure that gives you all the details. And remember--you are making no commitment by signing up! You can do one thing, everything, or nothing! But if you sign up, you are eligible for prize drawings at all of our programs, so go for it!

We hope to see you at the library this week!
