It’s a Transformation! Teen ARC Club –> Beta Books

Those of you who have visited our Teen ARC Club have probably heard the news — we’re changing the name! We voted and chose democratically: beginning in June, this group will be known as Beta Books. New name; same great flavor! Not to worry — we’ll still be reading and sharing ARCs (that’s Advanced Reading Copies — preview copies of books that haven’t yet been published!). We’ll meet 4-5 pm in the Activity Center on these days:

Friday, May 25

Wed, June 27

Wed, July 25

Wed, August 22

If you can’t make it to a meeting, never fear! You can sign out a book from the Teen Center at any time, and share your thoughts online. (However, the meetings are pretty hilar. I would recommend stopping by for the laughs and snacks if nothing else…)

Here’s our latest review from reader Maddie (thanks, Maddie!). The book is now out, so you can reserve it:

Title: Hourglass

Author: Myra McEntire

What did you think of the book? I liked everything about the book. It was well written with few if no mistakes, easy to read, and went by fast. My favorite part was when they went back in time to save the professor. I would recommend it to a friend.

How would you rate this book? 5 stars – Unbelievable! I’d rather read this book than sleep!

What did you think of the cover? I think the cover fit the book well. It showed how she’s coming from one place to the other. In my opinion, I’d like it if it showed both where shes going and where she’s coming out of.

Holly, I also LOVED this book (I’m a HUGE fan of time travel) and I can’t wait for the other books in the series. If you loved this you may also like Tempest by Julie Cross and Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier!

it’s me again! I was wondering if the library will be having a summer poetry contest. I will be excited to join.

Hi Writergirl! At the moment, we have no plans to host a summer poetry contest. We’ll keep that idea in mind! We do sponsor the “Celebrate the Arts” writing contest every March, and you can enter poetry.
