Teens & YA @ BPL

Case Closed.

The AniManga Club meets this Monday, the 23rd, at 4:00. It'll be different this time since Chrissy will be running it (I have to go to a meeting) and we'll be crammed into the Conference Room, but we're watching the first few episodes of Case Closed, so, if you've ever wondered how that little kid detective got that way, this is your chance to find out. We'll have some new giveaways and a new survey from Operation Anime, and lots of rice cakes.

Be there!

The second annual Teen Read Week Bookmark Design Contest

Enter it! Last year four teens won gift certificates to Borders, and we had their bookmarks printed professionally, and circulated them in the library for the rest of the year. (Talk about an ego boost!) Rules and entry forms are available at the Youth Services desk, and we'll be accepting entries ONLY during Teen Read Week, which is October 15-21.

Teen Read Week. Come to the library often, check out lots of books, and read them. And enter our contest! Entering greatly increases your chances of winning.

Volunteers party down!

Volunteer partyVolunteer partyWe had a pretty good turnout for our volunteer blast last Friday night and were able to say, when it was all over, that it was a big success. The surprise hit of the evening was that the board games were really popular - so popular, in fact, that we decided then and there to have a games night for our YA's once a month! We'll bring back all the games we had on Friday, plus lots of new ones (anyone have a Go board they could bring?), get out the DDR, provide snacks, and invite all our BFYA's. Late Night at the Library will kick off on Friday, September 15 at 6:00 pm. Details will be posted here when we get closer to the date.

Who will take home the monkey?

MonkeyWe'll know the answer to that by this time tomorrow, after the gala Volunteer Appreciation Party here in the library. All our Young Adult volunteers from this summer (you know who you are!) are invited to come at 5:00 for pizza, soda, games and prizes, and we'll raffle off the coveted giant inflatable monkey to one very lucky person.
