Enjoy Young Readers’ Celebration, Teen Read Week & Sci-Fi Contest

Posted September 19, 2012 in Altoona, Community Blogs

Win Star Trek Prizes in Our Sci-Fi Book Log Contest

Keep reading our science fiction selections for a chance to win an awesome prize – a commemorative set of STAR TREK-the original series glassware.

Enter our Science Fiction reading contest for patrons, ages 13 and older (adults, too) and win a set of “Star Trek” drinking glasses. For every science fiction book you check out (from the adult science fiction section) you earn an entry. Yes, adults may enter, too.  The more sci-fi books you read the better your chance of winning.

The contest runs until October 31.

Young Readers’ Celebration

Come celebrate the joy of reading at the library from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 29. There will be all kinds of games to play. Learn some karate (maybe break a board or two), enjoy some yummy pizza and other tasty treats-and who couldn’t use a massage to relieve daily stress? Come on down and have some fun.

Teen Read Week

We have an abundance of teen activities in October. Come to the library at 4:30 p.m. Monday, October 15 for Zombie Craft-pocalypse.

The next day, October 5, prepare to be scared at the “Dark Shadows” movie (rated PG-13). Showtime is 5 p.m.

We wrap up Teen Read Week with “Make & Take Edible Books” from 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday, October 18. You’ll understand that books can really nourish the body as well as the mind.

Haunted House Program

Do you like being scared? Come to “Iowa’s Most Haunted,” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, October 2.
