Play and win during Teen Read Week

Area teens will be reading for the fun of it as the Cloquet Public Library celebrates the eleventh annual Teen Read Week(TM), October 12 – 18, 2008. They join thousands of other libraries, schools and bookstores across the country who are encouraging teens to celebrate this year’s theme, "Books with Bite @ your library®."

This year’s theme encourages teens to read a wide variety of books and graphic novels, from animals to vampires to cooking, just "for the fun of it."

Teens only are eligible to play Teen Bingo at the Library then enter their names to win free books. Five chances to win. Drop by the library starting Mon., Oct. 13, for details.
