Teen Read Week!!

Teen Read Week is here!

This week, we at the library encourage you to read for the fun of it! Find a book you can sink your teeth into and taste the reading goodness! We're talking about Books with Bite. Books that are as sumptuous as a beautiful rib eye steak grilled on hardwood fire. Or that grip you in their jaws and won't let go till the very end.

You're encouraged to drop by the library and fill at a review form to be posted on our bulletin board. Or vote for your favorite book of the year.

On Thursday, it's Third Thursday Game Night, and we're dedicating it to the one man who knows biting: Pac Man! Come and compete for the best score, and win prizes! On top of that, we have a Super Smash Bros Brawl tournament as well! This Thursday from 6-8 p.m.

BTW, I've extended the deadline for the poll on the left. Thanks for your imput guys!
