Fall Festival & TRW

On Sat., Oct. 17, members of the library's Teen Advisory Board hosted their annual Fall Festival for the community. This year over 270 children people attended and enjoyed pumpkin painting and other crafts, library golf, Bozo Buckets, ball throwing games, face painting, a musical gravestone walk, pumpkin bowling & pie throwing. Several brave teens were the pie throwing victims. For the second year we also had a haunted room. The teens worked very hard & everyone had a great time.

The Fall Festival kicks off Teen Read Week each year and this week the fun continued as teens won prizes when they checked out 'winning' books from displays.

The votes are in for the top teen books of 2009. Teens voted this fall for their favorites. Paper Towns by John Green came in first, followed by Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer. Other books voted into the top ten were:

Check them out @ the library!
