Teen Read Week

October 12-18, 2014

Turn Dreams into Reality @ Your Library

Teen Read Week was started in 1998 by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). It's a literacy initiative, held annually on the third week of October, encouraging teens to "read for the fun of it." The idea is to get teens excited about reading for pleasure, not just for one week a year, but for the rest of their lives.

Thursday

Book Trailer Contest Voting

Create a book trailer for your favorite book by October 13 and send it to Mrs. LaRue. We will post them on the library website, and students (or staff) will vote on their favorites. The two book trailers with the most votes will get a $10 Barnes and Noble gift card!


You may use any program to create your trailer. Want ideas? Check out Animoto, WeVideo, Narrable, and Haiku Deck. If you want help using any of these, see Mrs. LaRue during your off hours, lunch, and before/after school! Have another program you like (iMovie...)? Or you just want to shoot a video trailer? That's perfect! Just turn it in to Mrs. LaRue by October 13!
