Blog Out of Use

Folks, thank you for visiting. You can still find some interesting book reviews here, but this site is only in use as a surveying tool currently and will not be updated.

You can visit our website at http://www.cclva.org or join our teen Facebook page--CCLVA.


Blog is Behind

This blog is out of date. We had information in too many places. However, I am going to use it to allow you to vote. See polls to the right of this post.

To find out what is going on at the Library for teens, go to the Library's website and click on "Teens". You can find events, book lists, and teen written book reviews there. You can also get on my e-mail notification list by e-mailing me at lbostian@cclva.org or keep up with us on facebook--the link to our page is on the right.


Space Cafe and Summer Reading

The Great Twilight Debate in May was a blast! The "for Twilight Team" took the win this time.
Now, we are all moving on to Space Cafe, where you can make up an alien character that you want to play at our Live Action Role Playing event on June 26, 12-2 p.m. You can read all about it at http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/space-cafe . Right now, Space Cafe is like Facebook for aliens from the Ninja Planet, the Jello Planet, and some more obscure ones. At the event you will dress up like and act like the character you create. To join Space Cafe, you have to join Obsidian Portal and then, hit the "join" button on Space Cafe so Laini can invite you. See ya there!

Also, we are raffling an iPod this Summer for teens who read 24 hours between June 21st and August 2nd. Other prizes include awesome furry monster keyrings and coupons for free video gaming at Digital Caffeine. AND an invite to our free roller skating party!
