This fall a group of creative kids ages 8 and up have been working on Star Mag, a quarterly magazine made by and for kids. At our monthly meetings, participants used markers, crayons, pencils, and latops to create artwork, stories and activities like word searches and puzzles. Click here to read Star Mag. Printed copies are available in the Children's Room. Our next meeting will be January 4 at 3:45 pm. We would love to have more kids join us. If you have any questions about Star Mag, please contact Barbara Raab either at 978 694-2098 or email@example.com.

So you've read all the teen books you've found on your own, and you're looking for suggestions? Brandy's spent the month updating the Recommended Reading pages on the Teen page. Sci-fi, fantasy, historical fiction, or realism, there's an updated list for you. (Mystery-lovers, please be patient; we're still working on your update!)
Also, a reminder: you don't have to be a teen to read teen books--there's plenty that will appeal to adults, too.

June is a military genius, having aced her exams and graduated early from the academy. Her first assignment: track down the elusive Day, the Republic's most-wanted criminal, the boy responsible for killing June's brother, the only family she had left. Day, in contrast, failed all his exams and has been living on the streets ever since, smuggling his gambling winnings to his brother, the only member of Day's family who knows he's still alive. June wants to avenge her brother's death; Day wants to buy the cure to the plague that's ripping through his family's neighborhood. June is about to find out exactly what the Republic government is capable of--and that's something Day has known all along.
The book is LEGEND, by Marie Lu. It comes out November 29, and you can request your copy right here.

Teen Read Week has come and gone for another year, but that doesn't mean there's no reason to pick up a great book. If you need some suggestions, or if Brandy came to your class and you forgot the titles she talked about, take a look at the high school list or the middle school list. And if you want more suggestions, take a look at the rest of our suggested teen reading lists.
