It was great to have a four-day weekend, but we are a little disappointed that Teen Read Week will be cut short this year. For those who don’t know, Teen Read Week is another special week for libraries and media centers to promote reading and books with our teens. Each year, we plan special activities in the BI media center to promote reading.
This year, we will award prizes to students who check-out a book with a hidden coupon inside, set a weekly book circulation goal, and have a special staff surprise to promote our favorite books. Also back by popular demand this year is our one-day only fine forgiveness for late fines up to $1. To have your fines waived, you must check-out a new book on Friday, October 18th and ask us to waive that fine!
Let’s see if we can circulate 1000 books over the remaining days in this week. If we do, Mrs. Lukkarinen and a few other staff members will color their hair pink to celebrate.
