Looking for a good read?

Have you heard of Reading Rants? The creator, Jennifer Hubert, describes it as this: "A group of booklists for those of you teens out there who need a good read, but are wondering if there’s life after Judy Blume and Brian Jacques".

It's a website all about books- reviews, booklists, etc. that is perfect for when you are looking for a new book to read and feel like you have already read everything on the shelves. I promise you, you haven't! Take a look at this website and I guarantee you will walk away with a booklist of your own.
Stay tuned for our list of Fall programs, which will be posted this week!
