National School Library Day at LaSalle Community Comprehensive High School October 27th, 2014 and today, every day

Part 2 of the series

“READING IS NOT OPTIONAL”

The above quote: you saw it, you know it, but who said it?

LCCHS students saw the quote on a couple of pin boards in the building one week prior to October 27th, 2014.

The week of October 27th students needed to find 5 clues: books by Walter Dean Myers misplaced in the library.

The lucky winner Dylan Sawers-Robinson, a very good reader who found the clues, is now able to buy his own favorite book:

Quick and Easy Library Program – Face Book Challenge

2014-10-10 12.42.47

Do you want a library activity that is quick and easy but entertaining as well?  This one will make your students smile and laugh with the added bonus of possibly finding a good book to read.  It is called the Face Book Challenge.  I found it on Pinterest when I was searching for activities to do for Teen Read Week.

There is very little set up (but be prepared to have your library shelves destroyed) – all you need is a camera and a couple of enthusiastic students to get the ball rolling.  The students had a blast finding books with faces on them and then positioning them to their body.  Check out some of the pictures:

Teen Read Week: October 12-18

read for the fun of it bulletin board

Looking for a program to promote your library?  Teen Read Week is a great opportunity to create enthusiasm in the library by offering different activities or challenges.  Westwood Jr. will be celebrating from October 10-17 with tons of activities which include a bookmark challenge, a “do you know your library website challenge?” as well as activities such as Superhero jeopardy and book café.  In order to get students to participate in some of the activities, I am offering up prizes for some of the activities.  Simple things like a $10 itunes card and $5 Scholastic gift certificates for the book fair.

Looking for ideas?  The best place to look at is at the YALSA website:  http://teenreadweek.ning.com/
