Metamorphosis @ APL

In case you haven’t seen me at your school or gotten at least a flier about this year’s Teen Summer Reading, here’s the scoop:

You must be going into 6th-12th grades.
You do not need an APL card but they are useful to have:)
You count hours not books.
You can read whatever you want: books, magazines, comic books, graphic novels, listen to audiobooks/Playaways, etc
You do have to sign up and you can do that starting May 31st at the library either the Check out desk or at Information Services.

The SRP runs from May 31st to July 31st and there are some great prizes (a goodie bag just for signing up) and programs including our End of Summer Reading After Hours Party if you complete the SRP where we give away some faboulous prizes!

For more info stop by the Info Services desk, call 641-2456 or e-mail: teen@and.lib.in.us

See you this Summer!!

Booktalks and SRP @ NSMS

Thanks to Mrs Wildman and her 7th and 8th grade classes for having me come for booktalks and to promote the Teen Summer Reading Program (more about that soon-btw). As always, I had fun and hope you did as well. Here are the titles that I brought with me today. Happy Reading and I hope to see you all soon @ APL!!

The Pharoah’s Curse Mystery Program

Hey, if you are between the ages of 9-14 then come to APL this Wednesday, May 14th from 6-8:30 and help us solve the mystery of the Pharoah’s Curse! Here’s a description of the program:

She was Queen of the Nile until the accident…or was it attempted murder?
Join your fellow detectives at The Anderson Public Library in solving the mystery, “The Pharaoh’s Curse.” You must investigate the crime scene and carefully examine the evidence in order to solve the crime. All detectives must be 9 to 14 years of age to participate in this interactive mystery.

Please register for this program by calling 641-2448 or online at andersonlibrary.net

Hope to see you there!

The merry month of May

So here are a few tidbits about the month of May that you may (or may not:) find interesting!

Did you know that May is both National Barbeque and Hamburger Month? Makes sense since as the weather is getter nicer and warmer, we want to fire up the grills and cook out…mmmm….sounds good!

Also, with the nicer weather you should know that May is National Bike Month so get outside and enjoy the fresh air with a bike ride.

I think that is what I will do tomorrow, grill up a hamburger or two and then go for a bike ride!!

Thanks!!

Thank you to everyone that attended the Read ‘n’ Feed featuring Neal Shusterman, as one of the comment cards said and to me this summed it up perfectly: Neal Shusterman ROX!! I agree and thought you all rocked as well. I had a great time and hope you did as well.
