52 Ways to Use Your Library Card: Week Seven

Week Seven: Celebrate Teens and Young Adult books
during Teen Read Week!

Richmond Public Library will celebrate Teen Read Week™ (October 14-20, 2012) with special events and programs aimed at encouraging area teens to read for the fun of it. Thousands of libraries, schools and bookstore across the country will hold similar events centered on this year’s theme, It Came from the Library, which dares teens to read for the fun of it!
Teen Read Week is a time to celebrate reading for fun and encourage teens to take advantage of reading in all its forms —books and magazines, e-books, audiobooks and more — and become regular library users. It is the national adolescent literacy initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association.
To celebrate we have several activities for tweens and teens during the week at different branches!
Are library fines getting you down? Have no fear, the 2nd Annual Teen Read Week Fine Read Off is here! Teens between the ages of 12 and 18, come into any library during Teen Read Week (Oct 14-20, 2012), read in the library and pay off your overdue book fines! Just stop by the Circulation Desk to register. (The Read Off only applies to overdue fines, and not lost or damaged items.)
Drop by any branch to register for the Cheap Date Raffle! You could be one of several winners of two (2) Byrd Theatre passes and two (2) drink coupons! (All winners will be drawn Saturday, October 20th at 4pm.)
