Summer Reading is NOT Over Yet!

I know summer is winding down and you’ll all be heading back to school this week, but there’s still plenty of time to log in your summer reading books. I bet you also have time to squeeze in a couple fun books before you’re busy again with homework!

I have a ton of awesome books waiting for a good home! For those of you who’ve read 7 or more books, please come in and grab your prize book! For those of you that haven’t reached 7 books yet, you have until August 1 to read and log. 🙂

If you want book suggestions, I’m always happy to recommend new titles. Just find me or knock on the office door in the teen room.

See you soon!

Divergent Lock-in Recap


Wow – Our Divergent lock-in was excellent!! Huge thank you to all the teens who came out! It looked like everyone had a blast – I know I did. What were your favorite parts of the lock-in? – I’m guessing capture the flag and face painting are on many of your favorite lists.

I only got a couple photos from the night, but they are pretty awesome. Here we have Cody, representing Dauntless while decked out in full face paint:

Hee! Well done Becca and Alyssa! I think this could be a new look for you, Cody…

Hope to see you all in the library soon. I’ll be at the Summer Reading Carnival  on Wednesday from 1-4. Come find me at the Monster Ball booth and enjoy our outside carnival!
