Come join us for the fun next week during your lunch period!
Now is the time to start thinking about Teen Read Week 2009! This year’s theme is “Read Beyond Reality”—what ideas do you as students and teachers have for celebrating this fall? Please post your ideas here on the blog!
Our second day of movie viewing for LOL@Your Unquiet Library for Teen Read Week was cancelled last week due to a scratched DVD.
We are happy to announce that we will finish our video, The Princess Bride, during all three lunches on Tuesday, October 30. Be sure to have a lunch pass! Thanks!

The Blatant Bibliophiles Book Club and the Live Poet Society Poetry Club celebrated Teen Read Week and the 31 Flavorite Authors of October with an ice cream sundae bar today in The Unquiet Library. Chocolate and vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, M&Ms, candy corn (it is October, after all!), Hershey’s Kissables, cherries, and sprinkles provided enough carbs to give us a sugar rush for days! How long until the next celebration?
Both clubs would like to thank Mrs. Fleet the Sweet who provided all the yummy treats! Thank you! See photos from the celebration at Mrs. Fleet’s blog!

About the Teens’ Top Ten
Teens’ Top Ten is a “teen choice” list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year! Nominators are members of teen book groups in five school and public libraries around the country—the 2007 nominees were chosen by book groups in Connecticut, Kansas, New Jersey, New Hampshire, and Utah, selected for their experience in discussing books.
