Free Zen Garden just for Signing Up!

When you register online for our Groundbreaking Reads Teen Summer Reading Program, you can stop in the Library and pick up one of these fun little Zen Gardens! Help to relieve stress by 'raking' your garden and arranging the rocks. Or share it with mom or dad this summer - they may need it.

You can also register for this really fun program that will also help you to relax and chill this summer - Doodle Art! It's doodling re-invented, sometimes called Zentangle in a certain form.
Join Eileen and Heidi as we show you how you get started, and all the cool things you can add your doodles to! You don't even need to have any artistic talent!

It's Time for Groundbreaking Reads!!!

Summer reading has begun! You can sign up for our Teen Summer Reading Program through the big purple button on the Library homepage, or through this link:

Tonite is our Summer Reading Kickoff - stop in and tell us you have signed up online, or you can register at the Library. We'll have an incentive prize for you, and you can collect the Teen Summer reading flyer which has information on how to participate and how to earn entries into our weekly raffles for great prizes!
(incentive prizes are available while supplies last!)

In the coming weeks I hope to add that information onto this blog as well. See you soon!

It's June...Summer's-A-Comin'!

We are getting ready for Summer Reading time here at RML, but I know many of you are waiting for that "end-of-school" time instead! After you get out of school, sleep for a few days and then get yelled at by your parents because you aren't doing anything but sleeping, please consider our Teen Summer Reading Program!

If you've participated in the past, you know that it's completely a do-as-much-or-as-little-as-you-want kinda thing. This year, we are using the Evanced system which allows you guys to log what you're reading online! Beyond that, we will still have fun games you can do and great programs as well, just for you!
Summer Reading kicks off on Monday, June 24 at 6pm. We even have a really cool registration prize for you - not telling what it is.

 But I wanted to mention a few things that I will talk more about as the summer draws near:
1. I have heard from RHAM Middle School about reading requirements - fairly similar to last year, so we will make sure we have the books here at RML on your lists. They do recommend the Nutmeg titles, which we already have and have been flying out of here! This year they have two teen categories: Teen Nutmegs and High School Nutmegs.

2. Please let me know if you'd like to join my Teen e-mail list. I won't bother you normally - just a way to get you information of the Teen Summer Reading Program.
And let me know any books you'd like to see us purchase this summer, or any programs too. We have some ideas (Ms Patty and I are thinking of repeating our success last summer with a movie night - yes, there will be food too).
