October 13 - Teen Read Week, English Language Day

Have some book fines your looking to clear up well today's the perfect day, it's the last day to of the Library's food for fines week and the start of National Food Bank Week. Do something great for the community just in time for Thanksgiving and clear up your library fines in the process. 

While your down at the library clearing up those fines, why not bring your teen along with you and get them a book they'll fall into. Trust me when I say we have some of the best experts of young adult literature. Check out the unknown, browse through the centuries, expand your genres and be bitten with our amazing selections of novels. Today is the start of Teen Read Week, if your too busy today doing family activities don't worry you'll have six more days to get down and find a teen book or find your teen a book.  This years teen read week theme is "Seek the Unknown".

As a last way to celebrate today, if you can't get down to the library that is, enjoy your day by celebrating the English language or playing a game of chess. That's rights it's also English Language Day and National Chess Day. You can honor these days by reading some old English literature, Shakespeare perhaps, or by learning how to play chess, challenging your family members or starting a mini-thanksgiving tournament. We'd love to hear how you are celebrating Thanksgiving, if its using something we've mentioned here, then all the better, share it below.
