Watch the Book, Read the Movie!
Join Teen Librarian Christina on Sunday afternoons to watch a recent movie based on a popular teen novel, and then discuss the book vs. the movie: which did you like better? How would you have filmed the book? Free popcorn! Copies of the next book in our series will be available at each club meeting for the first 15 teens who register at the Reference Desk or by calling (330) 688-3295 ext. 4; IF YOU JUST WISH TO WATCH THE MOVIE, NO REGISTRATION IS NECESSARY.
These programs will be held in the Stow-Munroe Falls Room and are cosponsored by the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library and the Friends of the Library.
Teen Read Week is Oct. 17-23, 2010.
This year’s theme, "Books With Beat @ your library®", encourages teens to read poetry, audiobooks, and books about music, not for school but just for the fun of it. Here’s a list of some "Books With Beat" available at the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library:

You can see all of the art on display in the library's teen area now through April 12, or catch them online here. The winning art will also be used to promote the library's Anime Club. Thanks everyone!

Our Hobbit Celebration was a fun time by all: costume contest (winners pictured), "ring cookies" and other snacks, a craft to make Hobbit Feet, and a Swarven Rune translation contest. Plus we played Hobbit Jeopardy and talked about what we hope to see in the new movie. Thanks to everyone who came to our celebration, and to the Friends of the Library for providing our food and prizes: a Hobbit poster and book, a bobblehead Hobbit, and two giftcards to Regal cinemas to see the new movie.
Congrats to KYLEE BOROS, KENZIE SCHRICKEL, RICKY TRITTEN, RYAN STAMPER, SAFA and RAGHDAH GOBAH, COLE ROSE, and FRANCYS CAMEJO for entering our Teen Read Week Contest! They each won an autographed copy of The Diviners by Libba Bray, plus their choice of headband or fedora to dress up 1920's style.
Win an autographed book! Write a review of any book you’ve recently read, for a chance to WIN an autographed copy of Libba Bray’s new book, The Diviners. Plus a bonus: choose either a fedora hat or a feathered headband! (since the book is set in the 1920's, you'll look jazzy in these accessories!)
If you entered our summer Photo Contest, please remember to come pick up your photo entries this week or early next week. (we're closed on Sunday and Monday for Labor Day.) Any photos not picked up by Sept. 7 will be thrown away. Thanks!
Thanks to everyone who came to our end of Teen Summer Reading party, the Zombie Lock-In! We had fun playing games like Minute to Win It and on the Wii, made Zombie Barbies and talked to authors Carrie Ryan and Ilsa Bick. We also got made up to look like zombies and then danced to Michael Jackson's Thriller: take a look! And here are photos of the lock-in.
