Teen event at PV Library

 By Sue Tone

Welcome to the Tone's Book Zone blog. I am Sue Tone, reporter with the Prescott Valley Tribune, here to bring you all sorts of book-related matters.

Today I thought I'd tell you a little bit about this Saturday's free workshop for teenagers at the Prescott Valley Public Library.

Teen Librarian Carol Sibray and the Northern Arizona University at the PV Library campus and Yavapai College are hosting the Blast Off! event that includes a free 50-minute workshop specifically for students in grades 6-12, followed by hotdogs and live entertainment.

The workshop, Becoming a Master Student, starts at 11 a.m. on Aug. 21, with room for 120 students. To reserve a seat, call 759-3042.

At noon, local teen band Awrong the Right Lines, singer Shaelyn, and special guest Mother Superior provide live music on the fourth floor Observation Deck, with hotdogs, refreshments, and door prizes. College, university and Student Leadership Program information will be available, as well as tours of the PV Library.

This event is exclusively for teenagers ages 12-18.

"We want to make sure kids have available information on higher education," McCormack said. "This is where dreams start."

Speaking of teens, I'd be interested in hearing from teen readers about some of your favorite summer books. Are vampires still at the top of your list?

And speaking of creatures of the night, I will be traveling through Forks, Washington, next month where Twilight was filmed. I'll see if I can post some photos here on my return.

Soon to come in this space is information on book festivals, how to create a book group, and local used bookstores. Please leave your comments below.

Until then, this is The End.

PV Library Drive Thru Book Drop off has a new Teen voice recording, when you drop off your library books. Very pleasant and refreshing to hear! Great idea to change out the old electronic sounding voice. I jumped every time it spoke!
