Read for Us Next Week

A Horror Castle by

There's a week in October every year that celebrates teens reading for fun and becoming regular library users (regular as in consistent, rather than normal--by all means, be as weird as you like). That week is Teen Read Week, and it's next week, October 14-20th.

We're celebrating next Tuesday evening, from 630-830 PM, by telling Tales of Terror around the campfire. Minus the campfire. All sorts of people would be unhappy with us if we had a campfire in the library.

We'll be circled up, sipping hot cider and snacking on caramel corn, listening to horror stories. In order to listen to horror stories, we need people willing to read horror stories aloud.

And so my plea to readers, to forensics buffs, to theatrical types, and to anyone else who enjoys reading aloud--we need just a few more people willing to read stories to fill our slate. You get to pick the horror story you read, and there's a cart of books next to my desk that you're invited to browse to find a good story.

I need you to let me know if you're interested in reading, so get in touch with me in one of the following ways: Call 832-6353 and ask for Brian the Teen Librarian, email teen at apl dot org, post to our Facebook page, or just ask for Brian the Teen Librarian next time you stop by (before next Tuesday, obviously).

You do not have to read aloud to attend--there should be more listeners than readers, and I'd expect more with how many of you enjoy checking out books from our collection. Come and enjoy stories, cider, and sweet, sweet caramel corn in the good company of other fans of the written, and spoken, word.
