Oklahoma will be celebrating its first statewide Teen Read Month in October. Teen Read Week has been extended to a whole month so more libraries and teens will be able to participate, as the traditional Teen Read Week tends to fall during Oklahoma’s fall break in public schools.
The Pioneer Library System is encouraging teens to celebrate this year’s theme, “Books with Bite @ your library.” This year’s theme encourages teens to read a wide variety of books and graphic novels, from animals to vampires to cooking, just “for the fun of it.”
For reading ideas check out these books with bite.
Teens celebrate Teen Read Month with special programs and events:
Thursday, October 9, 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. “Books with Byte” celebrates film! Teens can enjoy an afternoon movie. This “techie” movie is rated PG 13. Popcorn and drinks are provided.
Wednesday, October 15, 3 to 5 p.m. is Teen Afternoon Gaming. Join the library’s first Teen Pac-Man tournament. First, second, and third place prizes for highest scorers will be awarded. Also available will be the usual games including DDR, Guitar Hero and Wii Sports.
Thursday, October 23, 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Books with Bite celebrates film! Teens watch a “fangful” film which offers adventure and plenty of creatures with Bite, rated PG 13. Popcorn and drinks are provided.
Wednesday, October 29, from 4 to 7 p.m. it’s Teens MMORPG Offline first game meeting. Teens play the new, 4th ed. Dungeons and Dragons, using their imagination, not their mouse, to slay dragons. To save a spot in the library hosted game, sign-up at the main desk.
