The 2015 Teen Read Week Spokesperson is Bella Thorne. Read the article from the Teen Read Week website and learn what she had to say about libraries.
Bella Thorne is an actress, a dancer, a recording artist, and an emerging style icon, with over eight million likes on Facebook, almost six million followers on Twitter, and almost four million followers on Instagram. Her positive energy, her stay-true-to-yourself message, and her amazing family, plus the love of all the bellarinas/-os around the world, are the driving forces behind everything she does.
We want you to make your library an oasis in order to get away from all those worries of school, family, and friends. We want you to spend time browsing through our collections, attending our weekly teen events, and meeting new people. We want you to create a lasting relationship with your library.
This Teen Read Week we are asking you to Get Away @ Your Library in our Stress Free Zone. This zone will feature laughter, exercise, ninja stress balls, coloring, gaming, and the making of nutritious snacks. Scroll through the images to find your library and the schedule of events.
Just a little over 24 hours til the Walking Dead Season 6 Premier! Who is hosting a party or warming up the television as we speak? Or, are you anxiously awaiting Talking Dead and have already submitted your questions to Chris Hardwick?
Anywho, to satisfy your zombie needs why not read a few of these titles.
