“Have Book Will Travel” for Teens

24 Apr

With summer fast approaching, I’m sure everyone has been scouring the web, brainstorming with colleagues and studying the iREAD Resource Guide for inspiration.

We have come up with some fun ideas related to our summer theme that teens (hopefully) won’t find completely lame. Here are just a few things we have planned:

  • Henna Artist & Program – Henna is always a hit, and it fits in beautifully with this summer’s theme.
  • International Game Night – table tennis, Mancala, Go, Chinese Checkers, and more.

We are also taking our book clubs “on the town,” and meeting at different places in the community.  We are continuing the summer theme with the titles that we’ve chosen as well.  My older teens will be reading John Green’s Paper Towns which is a roadtrip novel Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone which is set loosely in modern day Prague and Patricia McCormick’s Never Fall Down which set in the very real, war torn country of Cambodia.

How about your library?  What fabulously inventive programs do you have planned for “Have Book, Will Travel?”  I’m sure a few people might still be looking for ideas to round out their programming schedules.
