Make Waves: Read “Swim the Fly” NOW!


So…you’ve signed up for the Teen Summer Library Program, right (RIGHT?!) Now, you know all about how the program works…but what about our made-of-awesome TEEN GAMES?!

Every week until the end of July, we’ll have a different teen game, like Think Like an Egyptian, a Famous Boat Match-Up, and Wax On/Wax Off. If you play—and you get all your answers right—you’ll go into our drawing to win gift certificates to McDonalds or Taco Bell (again…what’s not to love?!)

This week, it’s Frozen Treats—Unwrapped. You just have to match the name of the treat with it’s picture on the poster (and sorry…there aren’t any free samples. And the pictures will make you want to eat the frozen treats. But if you play the game and win, you can get frozen treats at McDonalds or Taco Bell. See how that works?)
.

Now, since you’ve signed up for the Summer Library Program, you need to read 1000 pages for your chance to win an $8 Target gift card, and go into the grand prize drawing to win an iPod. But where do you start?!

Well…we can knock 345 pages off your total, easy. So…haaaaaaave you read Swim the Fly? No? Well, watch our book trailer for Don Calame’s book, and then READ IT NOW!

It’s Time to Make Some Waves…


…at your library! That’s right, it’s time for the Teen Summer Library Program!

We’ve made a few changes in the program this year, but the overall idea is the same: read books, get an awesome prize. Who wouldn’t want to do that?! Now, if you’re new to the teen program, and aren’t sure how it works (or if you just need a reminder, or are curious about the changes,) you’re in luck…this movie will help explain everything!

So what are you waiting for, Bits and Bramblers?! Make Waves, and register for the Summer Library program at an M/RCPL location near you today!



Want Some Candy?


This is definitely the month to indulge…because June is NATIONAL CANDY MONTH! (Not that you…you know, needed a reason to eat candy. It’s pretty much a year-round kind of thing, isn’t it?)

Now, if you’re a real candy freak, take the Candy Bar ID Quiz—they’ll show you a sliver of a candy bar, and you have to choose which one it is (here’s a hint: look at the tops of the candy bars, too!) And you can head over to YumSugar and take their quiz to find out the World’s Best Selling Candies (try and guess what the most popular things are in countries like Italy and Saudi Arabia…you might be surprised!)

Or…you know…you could celebrate by taking candy, and wrapping it in more candy. What could be better than that?! Check out this video on how to make your very own candy sushi…and don’t forget to take some time this month and EAT SOME CANDY!
