Teen Read Week Oct 14-20

Teen Read Week is an annual event sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association. It is a time to celebrate your inner geek by taking advantage of the library’s many collections: books, graphic novels, comic books, magazines, eBooks, audiobooks, DVDs and music CDs.

For example, did you know…

  • that the library has over 11,000 young adult novels including bestsellers like “The Rise of Nine” by Pittacus Lore, “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins, “Divergent” by Veronica Roth and “Rot and Ruin” by Jonathan Maberry?
  • that the library’s music CD collection has Top 40 artists like Ellie Goulding, Flo Rida, Carly Rae Jepsen, Fun and Linkin Park?
  • that the library has subscriptions to “Batman,” “Spiderman,” “Wonder Woman” and many other popular comic books. We even have an entirely separate collection of graphic novels just for teens!
  • that you can download eBooks from the library for free to your smartphone or tablet?

Yeah… the library’s pretty awesome, if I do say so myself.

Daniel Boone Regional Library will kickoff our celebration of Teen Read Week next Monday, October 15. Plan to stop by and get a library card, if you don’t already have one!

All week we will feature exclusive interview segments with mystery writer April Henry at teens.dbrl.org. She is the author of “Girl, Stolen,” a 2013 nominee for the Truman Award.

We’ll wrap up on Friday, October 19 with the winners of this year’s “Teen Top Ten.” Be sure to register for our email notifications so that you don’t miss out on these blog updates!
