Library GrabBag: Teen Read Week, a celebration

Teen Read Week is just around the corner!  Every year Teen Librarians across the country celebrate the importance of recreational reading.  We kind of do that every day, but every once in awhile we like to throw a party :)  Teen Read Week always seems to coincide with fall break for our school district, so programming and party planning can be a bit difficult. We lose our after school crowd.  So instead of a week full of fun like some libraries introduce, we put all of the excitement in one day for a "Read In!"...10am-5pm.

This is what we have planned this year:

10-10:15pm (15 min)
  • Introduction
  • What is Teen Read Week?
  • Book related services in the library
  • Itinerary run-down for the day
10:15-11:45pm (45 min)
  • Book related scavenger sunt
11:45-12:15pm (30 min)
  •    Let's read! (Personal reading time)
12:15-2pm (1hr 45min)
  • Lunch [Little Caesers Pizza]
  • Movie (w/scavenger hunt & prize)
2-2:30pm (30 min)
  • Let's read! (Personal reading time)
2:30-3:00pm (30 min)
  • Craft
3:00-3:30pm (30 min)
  • Just Dance contest
  • Book spine poetry contest
3:30-4:15pm (45 min)
  • Let's read! (Personal reading time)
4:15-5pm (45 min)
  • Pop culture / Library trivia
Any teen librarians out there?  What fun do you have planned for Teen Read Week?
