Teen Read Week 2015 is October 18-24. For this year's theme, Get Away @ your library, a panel of YA authors will describe how they "Get Away" with fiction. And live to tell about it! It's also a book-freebie bonanza. On a first-come, first-served basis, signed books will be given away to teen readers. Authors include Wendy Delsol, Jan Blazanin, Eileen Boggess, Jenny Moyer, and Jill Hathaway.
Bring your blankets, pillows, snacks, and a drink (with lid) for a Halloween movie about a toy cowboy, astronaut, dinosaur, potato head and their other toy friends. Popcorn provided while supplies last.
