Teen Read Month Planned for October 2006 at the Buena Park Library District

Area teens will be reading for the fun of it as Buena Park Library District, located at 7150 La Palma Ave., celebrates Teen Read Week for the entire month of October. The Library will join thousands of other libraries, schools and bookstores across the country who are encouraging teens to celebrate this year’s theme, “Get Active @ your library®.” This year’s theme encourages teens to use the resources in their library to lead active lives.

Youth Services Librarian, Phyllis Nisle, hopes to increase teen literacy locally by offering a Get Active Reading Program from October 2nd through October 31st. Participating teens in the 7th – 12th grade can pick up a Get Active BINGO card at the Information and Reference desk beginning October 2nd or download it from our web page at www.buenapark.lib.ca.us and look for BINGO hotlink under “Library Information Links and Forms” on the first page, or just click here. Complete instructions are on the BINGO card. All participants will receive a Get Active bookmark at the time they receive their BINGO card. The first 100 participants to turn in their completed BINGO card will receive a special READ wrist band and will have their name entered into a drawing for a great prize.

Other activities and programs planned for Teen Read Month include a bookmark design contest, a Dance Dance Revolution Tournament that will be held Saturday, October 14th, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and a Karaoke Contest to be held Saturday, October 28th from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. These last 2 musical events will be held in the downstairs auditorium. For more information, call the library at 714-826-4100 ext. 125 and ask for Phyllis.
