The big eyes in the photo above are very sad today. This is the last post for Lee Teens. I will be leaving the Lee County Library in September. Thank you all, and keep on being wonderful. You can stay in touch with me through Facebook.

Teens who would like to sign up to help with the book sale on October 15 & 16 should contact the Lee County Library at (919) 718-4665.


Next Teen Advisory Board Meeting: Tuesday, June 22

17 06 2010

Come to our next T.A.B. meeting and help us plan our summer event! We meet on Tuesday, June 22 at 2:30 p.m. Bring friends! Bring ideas! Remember, you can also post comments here.

Read any good books lately? I’d like to recommend 13 reasons why by Jay Asher.

When Clay finds a mysterious package on his doorstep addressed to him, he’s puzzled that it contains a series of cassette tapes. Turns out, the tapes were recorded by Hannah, who committed suicide just weeks earlier. And Hannah says anyone who receives the tapes is part of the reason she killed herself. In one of the longest nights of his life, Clay listens to the tapes and finds out that he and some of his friends may not be who everyone thought they were. This is a real page turner with a lot to talk about. Don’t miss it! Let me know what you thought of it.

Once July hits and I can order some new books, I’ll add some titles here. Meanwhile, I’m open to suggestions for new materials–let me know what you like to read.
