Teen Reading, up up!

Thanks for reading!
The numbers are in -- teen book circulation is up 15% from last year. Bravo, readers! As always, teens are encouraged to contact Sarah with requests for the collection, which continues to grow based on community needs and interests.

...and read some more!
Teen summer reading has begun: collect tickets, win prizes! Teens receive a ticket for every program attended, every volunteer shift completed, and every book review submitted. The more tickets collected, the better the chances to win fabulous prizes, including an iPod touch. Prizes will be awarded at the Summer Reading Finale, date TBA.

Book reviews must be at least three sentences and should help a reader decide whether or not to choose a book. Reviews can be dropped in the box in the teen area and must include your name and phone number, so Sarah can put a ticket in the drawing for you.

For more information about the summer reading program, check out the teen page of our website, or contact Sarah, the teen librarian, by e-mail (smorgan *at* farmingtonlibraries.org) or on Facebook.
