Everyone is invited to celebrate Support Teen Literature Day (April 18), a special celebratory day during National Library Week ("Communities Matter": April 14 - 20), by checking out our special display in the Adult Department featuring teen fiction books with crossover appeal for adults. All books will be available for checkout - learn a little more about your community by perusing and checking out the teen books that teens and adults love. Bibliographies made by Youth Services Librarian Anne Crawford and her Teen Advisory Board will be available as these books will likely disappear fast.
