Booktalks at North Side

It’s booktalk time again! I got to visit a lot of almost-seventh graders today at North Side. Here are the books I talked about today:

Tangerine by Edward Bloor

Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko

The Watsons Go To Birmingham–1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis

The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray by Chris Wooding

I hope everyone today enjoyed the titles. I had a great time and hope to have even more fun tomorrow! Don’t forget–it’s time to sign up for the Teen Summer Reading Program!

Weekly News Bite

So, did you know there’s only four days until the Summer Reading Program Kick-Off? Everyone around here is getting geared up for it…and you should be too! Anyone from grade 6 to grade 12 can participate in the Teen Summer Reading Program. It’s super easy: sign up at the Anderson Public Library anytime on or after May 21st. Just for signing up, you receive a goody bag complete with entry forms. Guess what happens next? You READ, of course! You don’t need a library card, you don’t need to check the book out…you just need to read and record the item you’ve completed. Things that count: a book, an audiobook (book on tape or CD) or three magazines. Things that don’t count: a movie or your kid sister’s bedtime book. You turn in the completed entry form and that gets you into the weekly drawing. We will be drawing every Friday afternoon between 1:00-4:00 at our Get Reel for Teens programs. You can find detailed information about Get Reel on the Anderson Public Library calendar. Questions? Feel free to call me at 641.2456 or stop by the Reference Desk. Good luck and hope to see you at Kick-Off!
