Celebrate Teen Read Week!
*Play Book Bracketology all month long. Top ten nominated teen books have been listed bracket-style. Vote for your favorite book of 2010. We started with all the nominated books and have tallied your votes every week to whittle the list down,. There are 6 books remaining and you can vote until Oct. 28 when we will announce Cedar Lake's favorite book of 2010. The books are on display, too, so check out one of the top teen books of the year.
*During Teen Read Week, Oct. 18-23 play the Page Race. Pick up a reading log at the Check-Out Desk and then just keep track of the number of pages you read this week. Turn in your log and pick a small prize. You'll be entered into a drawing for a bigger prize. The reader with the most pages wins the grand prize. Join the race!
*On Thurs., Oct. 21 at 4 we'll have Wimpy Kid Mania. Play games, eat, watch parts of the movie, discuss, & more. Win prizes, too! Diary of a Wimpy Kid is the teen selection this year for Books to Bridge the Region. And we will definitely have cheese!
