Leesburg Teen Programs Wins Award!!

books-with-biteSome of you remember the fun events we had for Teen Read Week back in October! We had a Virtual Visit from Young Adult author Allison Van Diepen, (Snitch, Street Pharm) and we made magnets from discarded keyboard pieces. Natalie also visited Oak Park Middle School and hosted Twilight Trivia on Family night at the Book Fair!!

Congratulations to everyone involved, including you teens, but especially Natalie!! We won Honorable Mention in the YALSA’s (Young Adult Library Services Association) 2008 Best Teen Read Week Celebration Contest!! The 2008 Teen Read Week contest honors a librarian for planning a collaborative celebration that involves at least one teacher and one librarian working together to use young adult literature in an engaging way and leads teen to “read for the fun of it.”
