Teen Summer Reading is in full-swing. Have you gotten your Summer Reading folder? Along with prizes for completing your reading, there are a wide variety of activities and programs at a library branch near you. There is a main event Friday, July 11, 6-9 PM that is sure to draw a crowd: the Teen After Hours Party. Be a part of the very first Teen Choice Book Awards being presented at the party. Tell us which titles you think should win, by voting for your favorites.
One of the categories up for vote is Best Book-to-Movie. Who will get the most votes: The Hunger Games, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Divergent, The Book Thief, or The Spectacular Now? Have you read all the books that are nominees?
