    In your opinion, what were some of the best books of 2013? You can vote now on which titles you feel should be in the YALSA Top Ten list, along with other teen readers across the country. Voting is open now through October 22nd. (My pick is Tilt by Ellen Hopkins - gritty realistic fiction at its finest.)

    Did you know? There is now an iPad available just for teens to borrow for up to the two hours in the Teen Zone. It's loaded with the hottest games!

    Newsflash! There is now a True Stories section in Teen Non-fiction - for those of you who enjoy a hearty serving of reality. We have books about ghastly crimes, haunted happenings, tales of survival, and even a book about fairies (true story?!). Look above the Biographies or ask your friendly librarian for assistance (or recommendations!)

    We had a successful “Dig Into Reading” summer reading program this year.  Nearly 800 kids signed up and collectively logged 5,348 books!   Any child who was signed up for the program and read or listened to 5 or more books  was eligible to receive a certificate for a free ice cream at MVP-Merrimack Valley Pavillion.  Stop by the Children’s room by August 30 to pick your child's up if you haven’t done so already.  Also stop by to pick up your child's reading certificate, decorated prairie dogs and any additional stickers he or she may have earned!   Thank you to the Friends of the Library and our sponsors for helping make our our summer reading program such a success!  

    Check out the pictures of our summer fun!

     We would like feedback from everyone who participated in the summer reading program.  What did you like about it?  What would you like to see improved?  Please tell us so we can make next year's program even better.

    Tomorrow (Tuesday, August 20th), teens are invited to stop into the Teen Zone between 2-4pm to make the weekly drop-in craft - monster bookmarks! These cute little guys are made by using simple origami techniques and a lot of imagination! They really brighten up any book you happen to be reading at the moment.
