Looking for something fun to do? Join us this Wednesday, June 19th from 2-4 pm as we create "Scratch Art" from, well for lack of a better term, scratch. Prep your canvas and then put those right brain muscles to work! You will create your very own personal piece of art. What's more...this program is completely FREE and open to all Fox Valley teens entering grades 7-12! If that's not enough for you, remember, for attending and participating you receive an entry into our Teen Summer Library Program Grand Prize Drawing that will take place in August. Still not intrigued? Well...why not? Do you know how cool our Grand Prizes are? If not, stop on down and check them out for yourself. They are in the first floor display case in front of the Information Desk. While you're here...REGISTER for the summer program (if you haven't already done so), check-out the sweet new furniture in our Teen Area and....come to our amazingly awesome program. Be there...or...be left out!

Oh I loved, loved, LOVED this book! Celia Door, aka Celia the Dark, is just starting high school after a horrific end to 8th grade...she loses her best (and only) friend, her parents have separated and the school mean girls, Sandy & Mandy, have targeted her to be their next prey. Needless to say, Celia is NOT looking forward to 9th grade. Then she meets Drake. Drake is the new kid, the super good looking, ultra-cool New Yorker who apparently hasn't received the memo that Celia is "Weird" with a capital "W" and the two develop a wonderful friendship.
Of course, there is A LOT more going on here, but I don't want to give anything away. There is a lot of humor and the characters are very realistic teenagers. In fact, the only thing I didn't like is the neatly packaged "After School Special" ending. Mostly, this book was a delight and I would like to comment on the amazingly perfect cover. So many YA covers don't capture the essence of their book --- this one does just that.

We are once again teaming up with Valley Transit to offer free bus rides to the library on Wednesdays for kids ages 17 and under.
Kids, simply show your library card to the bus driver and you will be able to ride to and from the library for free. The Read & Ride program runs from June 12 to August 14.
Read & Ride is a collaborative program between Valley Transit and the Appleton Public Library with funding provided by the Friends of the Appleton Library.
