Teen Read Week

With the explosion of YA literature since the publication of Harry Potter, and with contemporary and innovative authors such as John Green, it is amazing to see today's young adults so passionate about literature. With this week's Teen Read Week, the Youth Service department here at Oak Brook wants to celebrate our teen users of the library. Here are some of the upcoming events:

Sunday, October 13  1:30-3:00 P.M.

Get your creative juice ready, because you have a challenging and fun task at hand: all in the efforts of a grand prize! For grades 6-12 we are offering a gift card prize for the best decorated pumpkin. Pumpkins, paint, and other materials will be provided. For free! If you want to secure victory, be sure to look up some ideas.

Here are some examples:

Also, feel free to bring your own supplies, too. There will be food, and general Halloween fun. Bring a group of your friends. We expect fierce competition. Call to register.

BLIND DATE (With a Book):
Dates all week

Julia from Youth Services will play matchmaker extraordinaire this week.  She will match you up with a secret, wrapped book. Come on over to the Youth Service area to get your blind date selection. You may be surprised, and fall in love with the book you are given by chance. Come on in for this cool opportunity sure to be a super hot date. #smokingHAUT
