Read More Books!

So like always, I'm a little bit late with my New Year's Resolution...but have no fear!  Just because I didn't declare my resolution on January 1st doesn't mean I still can make declarations and changes!!

So what is this late coming resolution??  To READ MORE BOOKS, of course!  More specifically, I would like to read 80 books in 2015!  That means I have to get through AT LEAST 1.5 books PER WEEK to meet my goal.

You may think that because I'm a Librarian, all I do is read books, but the truth is I really have to work at it to fit in all the books I want to read, and there are always a TON of books I don't get to!  As part of my job, I get to go through journals filled with book reviews on the latest and greatest teen reads...what to order, what to read, what to keep an eye out for!  As I'm sure you can imagine, this part of my job is fantastic, but unfortunately it makes my "to read" list a mile long!  I love to read what's new and popular so I can make great recommendations to you guys, but I rely on you guys telling me whats new in interesting too!

A great way for me to get recommendations and to find out about what you are reading is to check out your book reviews!  Conveniently enough, I have set up a handy-dandy ONLINE BOOK REVIEW FORM for you to fill out when ever the mood strikes you!  Bonus!  If you fill out a book review form now through February 14, you will be entered into the prize giveaway drawing for the Teen Winter Reading Program (grand prize = Kindle Fire!!)

So what's your New Year's Resolution??  Read more?  Join more clubs?  Study harder?  Learn how to knit/crochet?  No matter what your resolution is, we have something here at the Library that can help you meet your goal!!

What to do, what to do?  It's cooooooooooold outside, but you're bored of staring at the television.  You have all your homework done.  Everyone is busy.  You have to entertain yourself.  So what to do??

Might I suggest heading over to the Library?  We have a TON of new books out in YA.  There's always something on the DVD shelf to entertain yourself.  And what about checking out the new CD collection?  If nothing else, make sure to stop by to see what the Library looks like while we wait for our new furniture!  In just a matter of weeks we should have new tables and chairs everywhere, and all sorts of fun furniture in the Teen Area!!!  Woo Hoo!

Can't get out of the house??  No problem!  There are a ton of cool databases to check out:
  • eMediaLibrary (downloadable books and audiobooks!)
  • eRead Illinois (even more downloadable books!)
  • Freegal (Free Music!! download up to 5 songs a week...yours to!)
  • Mango Languages (because you've always wanted to learn Japanese!)
  • (in case you need a little extra homework help)
So chill out, warm up, and head over to the Library (or the Library's Website) today!

Don't forget... 
Teen Winter Reading is still going on, so write a review and get entered into the prize giveaway today.  ONLINE FORM HERE or stop by the Reference Desk or Teen Area to pick up a paper form today!

Tis the Season To Be Reading...

I think the name of the blog post says it all this week!  It's getting colder outside, school is wrapping up, the Holiday season is kicking into gear, and you are just exhausted!  No worries though, the Library has your back!  This time of year it is important to relax and and what better way to do that than with a nice book, audio book, or ebook!

Doing a lot of reading?  Don't forget to write up a book review for the Teen Winter Reading program!  It's already off to a great start with 10 entries in the first 5 days!  You guys are reading machines!  CLICK HERE for the online book review form.

Next week, I'll be blogging about what will be on my Winter Reading list.  I may not have a few weeks off like you guys, but I do have some time off, and I definitely plan on knocking off a few books from my To Read list!

And on that note, here are a few pictures from the Teen Area after I got the Holiday Bulletin Board up and the TAB members got done decorating it this week... ENJOY!
