He teens! I have been seeing a lot of you in here collecting your bingo prizes, and I must say, this years program has been more successful than ever! I have had 6 teens make it to level 5 and 4 of you blacked out the bingo card! That is much better than last year! Keep up the good work teens!
You have until August 31st to continue earning level prizes so keep it up! however this Thursday (July 28th) at 4pm we will be drawing for the grand prize! So if you are trying to earn raffle tickets, you only have a few days left! You do not need to be present to win, so if you do not come to YAK on Thursday and you win I will call you at 5pm to collect your prize!
I am very pleased with the posts that you teens have been leaving on the YAK forum, I hope some of you will continue to post after summer reading and keep the community alive!
I hope you are all having a good summer!
For those of you who attended YAK! today you know that today is Tanabata. The YAK! teens celebrated Tanabata just like the Japanese do, we wrote our names on slips of paper and then a wish to be granted. This holiday celebrates the reunion of deities Orihime and Hikoboshi represented by the start Vega and Altair who are separated by the milky way. These lovers are only allowed to reunite once a year on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month. The day of Tanabata changes ever year. The teens hung their wishes in the library garden, if the wishes blow away it means that their wish will be granted.
Here is the list of future dates
Hey teens! It's getting to be that time of year again, and we are about to start our Summer Reading Contest! This year's theme is 'You are Here.' It all has to do with travel and/or finding your way or finding yourself. If you are interested in participating, you can come into the library and pick up a bingo card, or download one from the teen site on the 'teen summer reading' page. See the bingo card for rules! This also means that Laura and I might be visiting some of you in your classrooms over the next several weeks, so be sure to say hi! This year the teen department is raffling off some seriously cool prizes! Each time you complete a bingo you get a raffle ticket! Prizes include Rock Band game for XBox plus equipment and a $25 gift card to Hastings, Mountain Home, and the movie theater! The contest begins June 1st so pick up your bingo card soon and get cracking!
