Welcome, teens, to the 2013 Summer Reading Program
Read All Summer at Brooks Memorial Library and have fun doing it...online!
Track your reading online and share what you are reading with your fellow teens using Engaged Patrons web site. Brooks Memorial Library has setup an account at Engagedpatrons.org. Click on this link to get started. All you need to do is register and track your reading. Prizes will be announced later, but go ahead and get started with your reading now.
The Library is your place, at 224 Main Street and online. Come visit us to check out books, movies, CDs, e-readers, and museum passes. Explore our digital media and homework help for 24/7 access to e-books, e-audio, and useful databases for school projects. Check in with the reference desk for free research help from a reference librarian.
You can also help shape your library's services for young adults by making suggestions for purchase for new titles or by joining the Teen Advisory Board. If your school has a community service requirement, the TAB is a way to fulfill your requirement while making a difference for the library. To participate, submit a Teen Advisory Board application, and we will be in touch.
Young Adult Materials in the Library
The Young Adult area on the first floor stocks new and popular fiction for teens, and you can also find good reading on the adult shelves and in the children's room.
Young Adult nonfiction, audio, and DVDs are shelved with the adult materials, but you can spot them easily by the purple dot on the spine. Graphic novels and comics are a popular area; you will find them on the mezzanine in 741.5. And please don't hesitate to ask us for help finding things; that's why we're here.
Keep your eye on this section of the website for recommended reading lists; for example, check out a YA Valentine for a little romance.
Research and Homework Help
If you live or go to middle school or high school in Brattleboro, you are entitled to a free card that will allow you to borrow and download materials and search all our online resources from home.
