The week of September 25th - October 1st is Banned Book Week. Some popular teen books are on the 10 Most Challenged List. These include Twilight, The Hunger Games, Lush, What My Mother Doesn't Know, and Crank! A couple of my favorite series hit the Most Challenged Books of the Decade list, His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman and, of course, Harry Potter by J K Rowling. For more information check out our display at the library or the ALA Banned Book Week Web site.
October 18th, the Teen Book Club will meet to discuss Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan. The TAB meeting will follow. On October 25th, the 16+ Book Club will meet. Early Release Gaming will be held in the Teen Room from 2pm until 3:30pm on October 26th!
