Escape to paradise…

Sorry this post is late, but I’ve been super busy finalizing everything for TSRC. Which starts officially in 6 minutes!

Here’s the official info:

The club is only for teens in grades 9-12. Meaning they are just going into 9th grade all the way to people who are just finishing 12th grade.

Game On! is going to be June 3, 10, 17, and 24 and July 1, 8, 15, and 22 from 12-2pm in Friends Room B.

Bangles and Beads! is going to be June 13 at 7pm. THat’s a Friday, and you HAVE to pre-register for this. Either call the library or go to the website.

Monday June 16 we’ll show the movie Juno starting at 6:30pm in the Storytime Room.

Monday June 30, we’ll show anime episodes. Again same time, same place as the Juno movie.

Indian Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark wil be July 9th (a Wednesday) at 6:30pm in the Storytime Room.

Taste Test: Breakfast at Nite! will be Wednesday July 16th at 6pm also in (surprise) the Storytime Room.

And now the best for last:


Battle of the Books! It will be Thursday July 24th at 6pm in Friends Room C. Registration is required (to get the books). You can get the 5 books from the 3rd floor Readers’ Services Desk. If the books aren’t there yet (which is very possible), make sure they take your name, number, and email address and I will call you when they get here. Or because they’re such awesome books, buy them yourself.

The books are:

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Looking for Alaska by jon Green

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by you know her name.

You guys better be happy about this 🙂

There is no sign up for summer reading either. Just pick up a flier at the RS desk on the 3rd floor and it’ll list all the programs, and a sheet of book tickets. Turn finished book tickets into the 3rd floor desk. Recruit lots of people for TSRC. Remember- each book read and/or program attended gets you entered into the prize drawing! What’s the grand prize? Let’s just say it’s going to be AWESOME.

Comments? Suggestions? You know the drill. Now get to the library and get started!

Summer Reading Club Info

Hi guys!

Right now I’m working on a proposal for the Friends of the Library. These are the people who will be funding summer reading, so it’s basically justifying everything we’re doing. Right now I can tell you what I have planned (and this is if we get $$$$):

Drop in Gaming: Tuesdays in June and July from 12-2 are going to be for DDR, Guitar Hero, Wii, and Karaoke. We’ll play a different game each time. Of course there will be snacks!

Taste Test: Just like the past two years we’ll do a Taste Test. Any ideas for a theme?

Movie Nites: There will be three. And the movies will be Juno, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Anime nite where we watch snippets of Anime shows (we needed a boyish movie night because a lot of our programs are geared towards girls).

Jewelry Project: A classic.

BOTB: I have the lineup of 5 titles. I think you guys pretty much already know what they’re going to be. This where most of the money that we’re asking for is going. It’s pretty likely they’ll approve it, but you never know. If they don’t approve it, we’ll just have our own private BOTB (not TSRC related). I’ll announce the lineup of books soon!

After we hear about the money, we’ll figure out if we can get the knitting shop near the library to do a crochet/knitting class. This is a maybe program. If not, I’m thinking it’ll be a good winter project (you know, make a scarf!).

Your guys job? PROMOTE!!! I need you to tell all your friends about summer reading, talk it up at school, anything to get people in here. Remember, the more teens we get, the more likely we’re able to get more money in the future, the more we can plan fun projects, the more I get to work with you guys!

Ok, what do you guys think? Yay? Nay? This sucks? Let me know. TSRC starts JUNE 1ST!!!!!

p.s. We are going to be having the end of the year TAB party, but I’m sorry I haven’t gotten around to setting a date yet. I’m working on it….
