When you sit back and think about it, the way that we learn about books is most often because we heard about it from someone else.  That someone else can be a family memeber or friend; it can even be on a tv show or webcast. 

So, you do what any normal person does–you get pumped up, lace up your sneakers and high tail it to the library to pick up that new novel.

But, the library doesn’t have it! Or, the book is on hold for someone else!  You offer up your card and get in line…but you wanted to read!  You were pumped to check out SOMETHING today.

Some people will come right out and ask about something to read until then.  Most people, however, won’t ask.  They’ll wantder around aimlessly, not finding anything that sounds good, and just pick up any old thing.

Well, hang on to your hats…cause here’s a suggestion to solve this crisis!  Have a second book in mind.  The people over at TeenReads.com do an AWESOME job of pointing out different books, topics and read-a-like titles. 

If you’re feeling REALLY ambitious, check out their TeenReads Ultimate Reading List.  OHMANIT’SAWESOME! : )

 

Currently thinking about: Reading a book on the Commons in this gorgeous weather!

Currently NOT thinking about: School starting up again in a few days!

what do YOU geek?

Posted: March 23, 2011 in Uncategorized

If you’ve been in the library recently, you’ve probably seen some posters and t-shirts talking about what we geek. Geek the Library is a new campaign that the library is participating in to let you know that no matter what it is that you geek — which is, whatever you’re passionate about — we can find something for you here.

Come in and let us know what you geek!
