I'm still formulating this thought, but what about a display that has tiny books teens can take with them that have the book cover and inside the first line from that book. Then you could increase the interactive element by having materials out for teens to create their own tiny first line books to add to the display for others to take? Obviously I need to refine this still but that's the basic idea.

I like the first lines idea, or maybe a favorite quote from that book?

My high school book club did something along these lines last year for TRW.  We typed up book recommendations and quotes from YA novels onto colorful paper and taped them after school one day to the 1000+ lockers in our building, so the next day students came to school and had a TRW message taped to their locker.  I've added 2 photos to the photo wall.

We do a "guess the number of candy corn" in a jar contest. Students get an entry for every checkout that week.

That is a great idea.

I agree - great idea. This is also a way I can reach out/involve the junior high behind the library. Thanks for sharing!

I'd like to do a giant magnetic-poetry type display/passive, or a display where they each add a line to a story. 

I might also have a station where they can make and take little zines out of recycled paper. It's a super-easy idea I saw on Pinterest: http://mentalbistro.tumblr.com/post/69609655909/8-pg-zine-from-a-si...
