Throughout October, Washington County Library is celebrating teens with a new TeenTober program.
TeenTober encourages middle school and high school-aged patrons to try new things that interest them for a chance to win free books and prizes. The new program replaces past events such as Teen Read Month and Book Ballots.
To participate, teens may try any media – such as reading books, watching movies, playing games, and listening to music – then submit a review telling the library what they loved or hated about it. Reviews may be submitted in person at a local library or electronically on the library’s website. First reviews automatically earn a prize, and every review is entered into a grand prize drawing at the end of the month.
Throughout October, library staff are also planning several teen-focused programs with weekly themes such as art, gaming, literacy, and crafting. This will include a variety of options, including take-and-make activities, virtual gatherings, and in-person hangouts. Each program a teen attends will also earn them an entry into the library’s grand prize drawings!
Washington County Library’s teen librarians are excited to welcome and celebrate this generation of library users all month long. Visit your local Washington County Library to learn more or find additional information online.
