Those of you who are reading the different series in the library, stay tuned. New books are arriving daily to complete those series. They are all around the room, on top of the shelves and on the little blue tables. For example: Beautiful Redemption arrived yesterday to complete the Beautiful Creatures series. But really, there are so many more I couldn't possibly list them all. Stop in. See what's here.
Sometimes it takes a little bit to get me onto the newest things. However, O'Neill High School LIbrary is now on twitter. Follow me....
Question: What and When Is Teen Read Week?
Answer: Teen Read Week is a literacy initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association. It’s an annual event, which is held the third week in October (October 13-19, 2013). Across the United States, public and school libraries, schools and bookstores take part in Teen Read Week.
The focus of Teen Read Week is on encouraging teens to regularly read books just for fun so that recreational reading becomes a habit. For example, in 2013, the theme is "Seek the Unknown @your library" and teens are encouraged to read a variety of materials, including graphic novels, movies, books and more.
At O'Neill Public Schools, we are celebrating by having another book give away. This time, any students who "share" something from the O'Neill Library Facebook Page (and have "liked" them), will be entered in the drawing. One catch however, is that you must come post here, with the time and date you shared, along with naming your favorite book or author! See you @ your library!
