Final results

First of all I would like to thank everyone that signed up for and participated in the 2018 Teen Summer Reading Program.  I had a record number of slips returned this year from teens that read and attended programs.  347!!!

So without further ado here is the final graph with all three months compiled:

As you can see aqua and green are very close yet again with 51 for green and 55 for aqua.  That makes a grand total of 78 for green and 91 for aqua for this summer so far.  Numbers like that mean we have a lot of voters and I super appreciate how many of you are reading and attending programs this summer. Thank you!!!

Here’s a pie chart of both months (June & July) together:

It’s honestly going to be a surprise when we reach our End of Summer Reading Party…

May Display

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and here is the library’s teen display for raising mental health awareness:

 

The top two shelves are YA Non-Fiction on topics such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD, eating disorders, etc.  The bottom shelf are fiction titles that deal with mental health issues.  To the right of the sign there are bookmarks with “Tough Topics” call numbers.  If you are a librarian viewing my blog click on the image to steal/borrow for your library- but check your call numbers to make sure they match.  I stole and remade this from another library and some of our call numbers were slightly different.

Lastly, you may have noticed, whenever I get a chance I put Mosquitoland by David Arnold on display.  Check it out if you’re looking for something “different” to read.  I liked it.

That is all!
