Christmas is coming soon, so here's a few gifts from the RPL Teen Scene:

This Thursday, we're having the last Game Night of the Year! Come Try out our Wii and Playstation Games!
We've also got a number of new books on the shelves. Like:

Paper Towns by John Green

What do you do when a girl dressed like a ninja shows up in your bedroom window? For Quentin "Q" Jacobsen, the mystery only begins when Margo and him go on a one night score-settling adventure. She disappears, and becomes a local mystery. Can Q find out what happened?

The Dragonfly Pool by Eva Ibbotson

"At first Tally doesn't want to go to the boarding school called Delderton. But she soon discovers that it is a wonderful place where freedom and self expression are valued. Tally organizes a ragtag dance troupe so the school can participate in an international folk dancing festival in Bergania in the summer of 1939. There she befriends Karil, the crown prince, who would love nothing more than to have ordinary friends and attend a school like Delderton. When Karil's father is assassinated, it is up to Tally and her friends to help Karil escape the Nazis and the bleak future he has inherited"--Publisher.

Emperors of the Ice by Richard Farr

Apsley "Cherry" Cherry-Garrard shares his adventures as the youngest member of Robert Scott's expedition to Antarctica in the early twentieth century, during which he and Edward Wilson try to learn the evolutionary history of emperor penguins. Includes historical notes.
