It’s Week 5 of the Teen Challenge!  Halfway through the summer!  Can you believe it?  I can’t!

This week’s theme is Science Fiction and Adventure.  Often the two go hand in hand.  I’m a huge Sci Fi nerd, so I’m always happy to have that genre get some attention.

Check out this week’s challenges online or at your local library.  Get those challenges in, get your names in the draws.  May the force be with you and live long and prosper!

Welcome to Week 4 of the Teen Challenge!

This week’s challenge is pretty cool – Mysteries and Thrillers.  Time to put your sleuthing hats on and try not to be too freaked out.

As per usual you’ll find the challenges either online or at your local library.  Get in on those draws.  And this is the last week to vote on a Summer Party.  You have until July 20th to get your preference in.

Happy mystery solving!

Hi Everybody!  Welcome to Week 3 of the Teen Challenge!

This week’s theme is a personal favorite of mine; Graphic Novels and Comics!  If you’re looking for some new reads, might I suggest Misfit City?  It’s a story of a group of girls who live in an Oregon town where a film very similar to The Goonies (in their case, The Gloomies) was filmed, and then they end up on their own treasure-hunting adventure.  Perfect for the summer.  Or maybe The Lumberjanes series?  Summer camp and more adventures!  We have a lot to choose from, is what I’m saying.

You’ll find the challenges either online or at your local library.  Get your names in those draws and don’t forget to vote on a Summer Party.  Rock on!

Hi Everyone!  Today is the first official day of summer (weird, seeing as how it’s felt like summer for a while now), and tomorrow is the first day of the Teen Challenge.  Coincidence?  I think NOT!

As with previous summers we wanted to do something special for our teens, but this year we’re trying some new stuff.  Ya know, doing things a little different.  Each week we’re going to give you guys four literary-themed challenges to complete.  Week one is going with Fantasy.

Some challenges you can do at home, some you do in the library, all can be done either by you or by you and friends working together.  It’s going to be super fun.

So what happens when you complete a challenge?  Your name gets entered in a draw.  We have weekly prizes and we have a grand prize – Beats Bluetooth Headphones!  WHA?!

And as if all THAT weren’t enough, we’re having a party.  A party YOU get to vote on for the theme.  We have three choices this year; a Videogame Fest, an Escape Room Party or Muggle Quidditch.  Tough choice, but I know you guys are up for it.

So how do you get in on this?  Go to the Teen Challenge website starting tomorrow and create an account of your very own!  Then get on those challenges!  They change every week, so keep an eye out, and also look to see your name on our new Leaderboard.

Have fun guys!  Stay tuned for more info!  Can’t wait to see what you come up with!  And enjoy summer!
