Next Wednesday night, February 8, at the Buena Vista Branch at 7:00 p.m., we're having a SHELF-TALKER WORKSHOP. Teens, adults, and children (ages 6 & up) are invited to help us paper the shelves with love notes to books! Stop in and create a shelf-talker about the book you love.
Write a (short) summary of what the book is about, and why you adore it. We will have pre-printed forms for those who only want to write about it, with "The Book I Love" and some hearts on it. But if you like, you can choose a blank form for yours, and then embellish the shelf-talker with drawings, a border, some fancy lettering, or just a few hearts—your choice.
Afterward, we will hang all the shelf-talkers throughout the library with the books they recommend, in preparation for VALENTINE’S DAY, so other people will know to love those books, too!
All materials will be provided.
Then, Thursday night, February 16, also at the Buena Vista Branch at 7:00 p.m., we will host
This evening will feature TEENS sharing staged readings from their favorite books!
Applaud for the BOOKS YOU LOVE or learn about some new reads, while you enjoy coffee-house treats! This program is for teens in grades 6-12 only!
TEENS who would like to participate please email firstname.lastname@example.org by February 9 with your name, contact info, and the book from which you would like to read. We hope to have lots of participants for this! (You don't have to email if you're just planning to attend, only if you want to read. All teens are welcome!)
It's a February of book love at Burbank Public Library!
