National Library Week Teen Edition

This month in the teen room, we have so many fun things going on! Summer may be around the corner, but hang tight! This month we’re celebrating libraries and what they mean to us for National Library Week!


National Library Week

This year’s theme for National Library Week is “Libraries = Strong Communities”.

Please share with us how the library impacts you and write on the room display, either “what the library means to you” or “why you’re visiting today”. Doing so may result in a piece of appreciation candy! Also, partake in the National Library Week themed makerspace with book art, page painting, or paint a book end! For those of you more drawn in by mind puzzles, the giant Sudoku board in the hallway may be for you!


Calling All Teens!

If you haven’t already taken a survey about ideas for our upcoming podcast, please do so! Your voice is very much heard and is being taken into consideration! Podcast Surveys are found on the tables of the teen room.

Another way to use your voice in the teen room would be to give us suggestions on what to rename this “Can’t Stop Reading” teen blog (meta, right!). As long as the language is appropriate, all suggestions are welcome! Leave your vote in the specified ballot box on the teen room desk!

Thanks Volunteers!

National Library Week also happens to fall on Volunteer Appreciation Week! Since September, our teen volunteers have given us a total of 472.75 hours of precious time! From everyone in YA, we appreciate all that our volunteers do for us and the library. You guys truly make our community a better place!

Check Out Our Soaring Eagle Award Winners!

Another big thank you to those who participated in reading and voting on our Soaring Eagle books this year! The winners have been posted and we’re even more excited to see what next year’s Soaring Eagle nominees will hold!
