Teen Read Month is Here

When was the last time you read simply for the pleasure of it?  Once school starts and the homework rolls in, it is easy to forget that simple joy.  But here at Sno-Isle Libraries we believe that this is a gift you can give yourself every day.   Even if you can only squeeze in a small bit, say 15 minutes before bed or while taking the bus, it simply makes a day better.

So for the entire month of October, we are going to celebrate teen reading, teen books, and just plain reading for the fun of it!  I don't know about you, but I like celebrations with fun themes.  This year Teen Read Month's theme is It Came From the Library. And if you saw our Sneak Peeks for the month here on the blog, you know we have a ton of fun events going on.

We also have our 9th Annual Teen Art Contest happening right now.  Create 2D art celebrating what you see when you imagine "It Came From a Book." Use your creativity and talents to show us what you've got!

The top 4 entries will win a $50 gift card from Amazon provided by the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation. Bring your entry form to any Sno-Isle Library by October 31. Teens age 12 to 18 (or in 6th to 12th grade) can enter.  Entry forms can be found here.
