Post-It Note Art Show

20160808_094722We’ve been holding a Post-It Note Art Show for teens this summer, and their artwork has been so much fun to look at! Aren’t our teens talented? We think so!

Teens, don’t forget, this is our first Book Buck Spending week. Drop in every day…the window will change. And if you want to keep your bucks for next month, that’s okay, too. We’ll have lots more fun coming up!

Book Bucks Galore!

20150804_190209It’s here! The last week to spend Book Bucks! If you have teen readers who were collecting their Book Bucks this summer, make sure to remind them to drop in anytime Monday to Saturday in order to spend them. Once this week is over, that’s it for this year!

We had a LOT of teen readers this summer, and it was fun seeing what they picked to cover the Book Buck Bingo squares. From books in a series, to books with a cyborg, our teen readers had to challenge themselves and read a bit outside the box in order to earn their Book Bucks.

For the first spending week, we took $87 book bucks in total. I’m pretty sure everyone enjoyed what they purchased, too. We expect that number to probably triple this week. Hmmm….what exactly is in that “Secret Prize” worth $16??!!

Don’t worry…if your young reader didn’t get a chance to participate in this fantastic summer reading program, we’ll be doing it again next year! Only 11 more months to wait….

 

Book Bucks Spending Week!

It’s almost here–book buck spending week! Our teen readers have been busy reading up a storm, collecting book bucks since the beginning of the summer. And next week is the first week to spend them!

20150804_190209How does it work?

Each square on our Book Buck Bingo card is worth ONE book buck….a special summer library dollar. Teens who have been collecting the book bucks can bring them in and spend them on items we’ll have on display in our Book Bucks window.

What are the items we can purchase with our Book Bucks?

There will be plenty of great things, from books, to gift cards, to candy, to crafty items. The possibilities are endless, and you will have to wait until Monday of next week to see what we’ve got!

Do I have to spend my book bucks now?

No! A lot of readers wait until September, trying to collect the maximum amount of book bucks. Some readers simply spend a dollar or two in August and keep the rest. It’s an exciting time, and a lot of deliberation goes on.

So, drop in anytime next week to see what we have “on sale”.

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!

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!
