Annapolis Valley Regional Library (AVRL) branches will celebrate Teen Read Week October 28-November 2, 2013 with special events and programs aimed at encouraging teens around the area to read for the fun of it. Teen Read Week is a time to celebrate reading for fun while encouraging teens to take advantage of reading in all its forms —books, magazines, e-books, audiobooks and more! It is also a great opportunity to encourage teens to become regular library users.
The libraries at AVRL have some great events planned, including a Carnival just for teens at our Annapolis Royal, Berwick, Middleton, and Port Williams libraries. Games, photo booth, prizes, and snacks await! GirlPower, a program for girls ages 10-15, will be held at four of our library branches. Our Bridgetown branch is throwing a Harry Potter Party, and in Kentville teens are invited to A Night in Paris. There’s also a contest planned for the week—check out a Teen Read Week display book and be entered to win a “Big Bag o’ YA” books and treats. And starting November 1, we will offer LIVE online Homework Help from Tutor.com. Teens can get help with Math, English, Science and more from expert tutors online.
Stop by your local library this week to see what's going on! You can print out the week's activities here.
