It Came From the Library

Young adults are invited to celebrate reading for fun during nationally observed Teen Read Week™ at all Fauquier County Public Library branches Oct. 14-20.

It Came From The Library® reminds teens to take advantage of reading in all its forms – books, magazines, audiobooks and more – and to make the library a frequent hangout. All week long there will be cool books on display to choose from. Any time of the year teens can chill in our comfortable seating areas. Bring a laptop and tap the wi-fi or surf the web on our public computers.

Need a suggestion on what to read? Ask a librarian! We have the latest bestsellers and popular series in stock. Looking for a favorite author or subject? Book lists and read-alikes are only a heartbeat away.

Be sure to check out the annual Teens’ Top Ten books to be announced during Teen Read Week. These “teen’s choices” are favorite books of the year, nominated and chosen by young adults nationwide. View the 2012 list of nominated titles to see if your favorite made the cut.

Here are a few of my favorites from the list:
If you’re into danger and fantasy, read about teenage Victor Frankenstein’s dark quest to save his twin in This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel.

How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr paints a realistic portrait of abuse, teen pregnancy and turning your life around.

The teenage main characters in The Fault in our Stars by John Green are battling cancer so even though it’s a tearfest, it’s also poignant and funny.

Reading is free, fun and can be done anywhere! We dare you to read for the fun of it!
