Got fangs??? We do. And we have enough for you and all your friends, too. The Eastern Avenue Branch Library will be hosting a Breaking Dawn Party on Friday, July 20 from 6-8 pm. There will be fangs for all, cool crafts, yummy snacks, Twilight Saga trivia, werewolf relay races, soundtrack fun, and prizes galore. Breaking Dawn is the final installment of the best selling Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer, which have also become blockbuster titles on the big screen. You can always check out the books and movies from any local library to hold you over ’til party time. Call DPL today at 563-326-7832 to register for this fun teen event!
DPL’s Teen Summer Reading Program is underway. If you haven’t registered yet stop by one of our 3 locations and sign up today! All you need to do to register is provide us with some basic info–name, email, yada yada–and then we’ll give you a Summer Reading Log. Use the log to keep track of what you read from June 2nd through August 2nd–you get 1 point per page. Teens can also get points for attending library programs, listening to audio books, writing reviews, volunteering, and more. Add them all up and when you reach 500 points you can redeem your halfway prize. After you hit 1,000 points, turn in your log to receive a FREE BOOK and we’ll also enter you into a grand prize drawing. Wahoo! Plus, we have tons of cool programs for teens going on all summer long. Oh, and remember–you get points for attending programs, too. Win! Win!
Stay tuned to the blog as we’ll soon preview many of the great programs we have lined up for you this summer. Hunger Games Party–what?!! Battle of the Bands–yes please! Breaking Dawn Party AND How to Slay a Vampire–head explodes. This summer could be quite a scorcher so don’t forget you can always stay cool at DPL…the air conditioning is free, so are the library cards, not to mention all the various items you can check out and take home. Uh, just remember to bring them back. Otherwise, that’ll cost ya.
