What’s Happening

Have you signed up for the Summer Reading Program yet? The Teen Summer Reading Program is open to students who are going into 6th grade in the fall through those who graduated from high school this year. Read at least 750 pages and/or minutes by July 31 and you’ll get a packet of prizes. Or you can keep reading, and reach at least 1500 pages and/or minutes and you’ll also get a bonus prize.

 

Want more chances to win prizes? Write a short review of a book you’ve read this summer. For each review, you’ll get an entry into a drawing and your review may be featured on the library’s blog. Book reviews can be mailed to the Library, submitted electronically, or emailed to molinelibraryteens@gmail.com.

 

Just because we aren’t open doesn’t mean we aren’t having programs. Call the Library at 309-524-2470 to request a program packet. The first one is available now, and contains instructions and materials to create origami, bracelets, and mini edible books. The next packet will be available starting July 13. Visit this blog for a demonstration of these crafts each Monday.

 

Feeling creative at home? Send us your Bookface Shelfies and Book Spine Poetry! What on earth does that mean? A Bookface Shelfie is a selfie with a book. Use the cover of a book plus you, your pets, or anything else to create a bigger picture. To create Book Spine Poetry, just grab a stack of books (at least three) and stack them so the titles make a poem.

                  

Submit your photos to molinelibraryteens@gmail.com to be featured on our blog and social media.

 

But wait, there’s more! Sign up for our Zoom Circuitry Program. Once you’re registered, you can pick up a circuitry kit from the Library through our Curbside Delivery Service. Then you can join us live through Zoom on Tuesday, June 23 to learn how to make your own devices from the kit. You’ll be able to ask questions, see what others are doing, and show off your own work. The kits are limited, so register soon.

Have a question? Looking for a book? Call the Information desk at 309-524-2470 Monday through Friday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. We’ll be happy to help. You can also email us anytime at information@molinelibrary.org.

What else can we do to help you? Is there something you would like to see us do online, like book talks, book readings, etc.? Would anyone be interested in doing a virtual book discussion, either live through a web conference or through the blog? Are you looking for more activities to do at home? Let me know what you need and we will do our best to help.
