We will hold our first Reston TAB meeting of the 2021-22 school year this Wednesday, 8/11, at 7pm at the Reston Library. Service hours will be given for attendance.
FCPL’s 2021 Summer Reading Adventure is underway. You have about three more weeks to get entered and complete your reading log and the other online challenges. Once you do, you will be entered to win some great prizes, including gift certificates and Nats tickets!
Feeling creative? FCPL is also hosting a Teen Cover Art Contest and a Teen Film Festival. Deadline for submissions for these two contests is September 1. Go forth and create! (Or, sit quietly and read!)
The Fairfax County Public Library has new operating hours:
Mon – Wed, 10am to 9pm
Thu – Sun 10am to 6pm
This means our regular Thursday evening timeslot is no longer an option. So, Wednesday it is! We will keep the 7-8:30 timeframe. We will meet in person at least once a month, the 2nd Wednesday of the month – beginning with August 11th. At this first meeting we will have snacks, make a new bulletin board display for the Teen area, and plan for the year ahead. If you like, you can also come prepared to share your favorite Woden/Odin-connected book/series in honor of our new meeting day.
You are never too old for a picture book! Do you have a favorite from when you were smaller? Do you have a new favorite?
In addition to anything by Mo Willems, “The Monster at the END of This Book” is simply the best.
The Fairfax County Public Library’s quarterly magazine, Branch Out, is looking for ideas for its upcoming issues. Specifically, they want to know what ideas Teens would like to see discussed.
