Summer Reading for Teens: Spark a Reaction!

The Summer Reading Club at your library is here! Sign up online or in person, read whatever you want, and earn great prizes!

Why read this summer? I'm glad you asked. Reading helps to fight boredom and keeps your brain active while school is out. Reading offers chances to escape, journeys to travel, and mysteries to solve.

Reading is also tremendously important when time travelling. Don't believe me? Check out our special public service announcement that shows just what can happen. It stars our beloved TARDIS as well as a few other curious characters. The video is below.

Our Summer Reading theme for teens is Spark a Reaction, and it runs all the way until August 31. You can let us know what you're reading on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #crrlsummerlove. Sign up and be sure to keep an eye out for the TARDIS as it travels around our libraries.

Three authors wrote notable books on eating in lean times: MFK Fisher, Elizabeth David, and Patience Gray. Fisher and David wrote during and just after the war, respectively. Gray wrote about places where food was scarce at certain times of the year. They all offer sage advice and write well.

Odd, the things one finds when browsing the shelves. I found this jewel the other day, when I was looking for something, anything to read. What a great way to start summer reading: a visit to Samarkand, hi-jinks at graduate school seminars,encounters with strange yet endearing characters , dark hints about Tolstoy's death, and the link between King Kong and Isaac Babel.
