It’s Almost Time!

While we’re still a week away from starting up fall programs, we’re busy planning everything in sight. First up, it’s Book Buck Spending Week #2!  And while we had lots of teens in to spend their book bucks in the first week, we know there are still plenty of those little green bucks out there. Plus, we have TONS of great things still to spend them on!

So, starting Monday, Sept. 8th….drop in anytime to spend the Book Bucks.  We’ll be re-filling the window all week long, so if you still have a book or two to finish, you can keep collecting. But don’t save these bucks for next year….once Sept. 8 – 13th is over, your book bucks will be no good. So, plan on a spending spree next week. Can’t wait to see everyone!

Spend, Spend, Spend!

It’s finally here…the first week in our crazy, fabulous Book Bucks Spend-a-thon!  It only lasts one week, but don’t worry, if you can’t make it or don’t have enough Book Bucks yet, there’s still another week coming up in September!

How does it work? Our teens have been reading all summer, trying to accomplish all of the spaces on our Book Buck Bingo card.  It’s a challenge, but they’re doing well! We’ve seen readers avidly looking for a book with a one-word title, readers who have charged through a series this summer, and readers who have crafted a little something for us. It’s been lots of fun, and hopefully, everyone has a pocket full of book bucks.

What can they buy?  There are books, candy, movies, toys, jewelry, games, and much more, including several SURPRISE buys! The best thing is, the window will change almost everyday as people spend their bucks. So, our readers will have to keep coming back if they want to make sure to get something special.

Don’t Go in the Water!

Just one of the fun things we’ll have coming up in July. Haven’t seen a shark at the library before? Don’t be surprised if you do! Better keep your chainsaw handy……

 

 

Book in a Jar

For our special teen event during the March Break, we’re having a “Book in a Jar” contest! There will be three jars in the YA section to look at, each with a certain book inside. Pick one up, figure it out and fill out a ballot. book in a jar

It might be easy, it might be tricky…but it’ll be fun! Maybe you’ll even win a prize!

Book Bucks Week #2!

20130807_160836_1We’re gearing up for our last Book Buck spending week, the teen portion of our TD Summer Reading Club 2013! This summer, we had so many teens reading and collecting book bucks that we’ve had to expand this wonderful reading program. In our first spending week, our readers were reluctant to spend all their reading cash in order to save it for wonderful prizes this month. Don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of great things to purchase, and the “store” will change daily and always be well stocked.

So, get ready. Our store will open on Monday, September 9th and will stay open until Saturday, September 14th. Bring all your book bucks and be ready to spend, spend, spend!

Book Bucks Week is Coming!

It’s almost here…what all our teen readers have been waiting for:

 

SPEND YOUR BOOK BUCKS WEEK #1!

Our windows are being prepped, the secret items are being priced, we’re stacking boxes so we can re-fill at a moment’s notice and we’re expecting LOTS of readers to come in with their book bucks. They’ve been reading and saving, reading some more and saving some more, and we’re excited that we’ve had so many kids participate in our version of the wonderful TD Summer Reading Club this summer.

If you know someone who has been participating, remind them to drop by anytime between Monday, August 12 – Saturday, August 17 to spend, spend, SPEND!  We’ll also be holding a Book Buck Spending Week in September, so there’s no hurry.

Happy Spending!
