Make It! Lab
April: Book Craft
It's National Poetry Month and we're celebrating with some book crafts! Distress old books and make page poems, or try building a poem using only the titles of books in the teen room. We'll have prizes for the best poems, come join us!
We'll be doing a different Make It! activity on the second Thursday of every month--come build your own DIY skills!
What to Read?
One of the best ways to find a good book is to talk to your friends. What are they reading? What did they like about a particular author? Is there a series that really grabbed their interest?
Want to find out what teens around the country are reading? Go to the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) website http://www.ala.org/news/pr?id=12354for listings of best books, fabulous films and amazing audiobooks just for teens. Plus, special awards are given each year such as: www.ala.org/morris the Morris Award for best debut novel for teens and www.ala.org/yalsa/nonfiction for best nonfiction for teens.
