Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): Get Caught Reading
Gather around, I'm going to impart some great social advice here: If you want to get to know somebody, like really know them, ask them what their favorite book is! Seriously, you can learn a lot about a person by what they read (or listen to—because Audiobooks totally count)! Talking about books usually gets people to open up about all sorts of things. NOW, if you want someone to ask you about your favorite book, carry it around with you and "Get Caught Reading!" We'll even make it easy for you as we happen to be celebrating the nationwide campaign “to promote the fun of reading books for all ages” this week! Be sure to post your pics with #jaxlibrary and tell us how it goes! (YOU'RE WELCOME!)
