Slaying the Summer Reading Dragon

Thanks to everyone who participated in our Midsummer Knight’s Read program this summer.  We had a great turn out of readers, and one lucky reader took home our iPod Touch (man, we really hated to let that cool toy go…but, it went to a good home!)  Four other lucky teens took home gift cards to places like Subway and Wal-mart, so the swag we gave away was pretty cool.

Did you know that there were more than 2,745 hours read by our 300+ readers? That’s an amazing amount of pages turned!

So, what’s next at the New Lenox Public Library for Teens? Well, since you asked…

Hunger Games Party
Meeting Rooms A & B

Have you read The Hunger Games trilogy? Think you could survive right alongside the likes of Katniss or Peeta?  Come test your know-how at the New Lenox Public Library’s Hunger Games Party!

We’ll have Hunger Games Trivia, learn a few skills and test the skills you can bring to the arena with a cornucopia of skills tests to see if you too
could survive in the arena.

 Even if you haven’t finished the series completely, or if you’re curious to see what all the fuss is about, join us for this fun and challenging event.  And remember,

“May the odds be EVER in your favor!”

Plus, in the next few weeks, we’ll be cluing you into our NEXT contest and a TON of new programs. 

Keep your eyes peeled, ya’ll…some great things are going on up in our little corner of the library! : )
