TAB: Blind Date Book Party!

At the Huntington Branch Library on Friday, 9/11, at 4:15 PM. Teens in grades 7 – 12 are invited to join the Teen Advisory Board (TAB). Plan the library’s teen events! This month, members are encouraged to bring along a book with a cover blocked by paper to swap for another “blind date” book. (Yes, library books are allowed!) Will it be a match made in readers’ heaven? To find out, register beginning 8/27.

Teen Time

Teen “Time Travel” Summer Reading Club

At both libraries beginning June 29, teens entering 7th grade through entering 12th grade can participate in teen events as well as reading challenges to compete for exciting prizes including a free introductory flight lesson on a small plane – donated by Image Aviation!

Teens also receive one ticket when they come to teen events, and TWO tickets when they bring a friend to an event!

Teen purchase requests

The Huntington Branch Library is interested in what you’d like to have us purchase for you.  We have put request slips and our “usual jar” in the Teen Room for you to make your requests.  We can order books, audio material, and movies for you – just make sure you enter contact information on the slip so that we can reach you if we have a question.  If we decide to make the purchase and you are the first person making the request, you get to be the first one to borrow it!
