So in addition to having Kathryn Erskine come out to talk about her book, The Incredible Magic of Being, and having an astronomy professor come out to talk about space/galaxy/stars, we have finally chosen the book for our student book club. I decided to go in the direction of sci-fi for this book to try to get a different group of teens interested, and chose the book Friends for Life (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26186828-friends-for-life ), that features a ghost and her relationship with troubled kids.  I have bought 15 copies and we will hold a culminating activity during Teen Read Week with lunch served to the students. 

It is great to hear how well everyone is doing.  I have met with the local manager and I gave him a certificate.  We even took a picture.  Our Fit Desk Bikes came in and students are signing up for the #ReadFit and #ReadWoke challenge.  I am so excited about everything!  

We are down to a little more than 2 weeks before TRW! Our funds finally went through the process of city approval and distribution and should be ordering our items hopefully today.

We have receive allot of positive attention on our TRW program from staff and patrons (see attached flyer) and will be emailing the schools and clubs soon about the program. In addition, we have finished our blog post for YALSA and will submit pictures upon our program's completion. There are allot of moving pieces but our teen services team (of two) is working their hardest for our teens and community!

Our Teen Advisory Group has been a great help for our marketing and outreach for this program as well.

I love your flyers. Your events are going to be out of this world!

I must have deleted the recent email from Taylor about completing either the blog entry or the video, and what the time frames were...could someone copy and paste it in the body of this forum? I thought her comments were posted here, but they aren't.
