What better way to prepare for high school than reading books? Keep track of the books you’ve read using Beanstack. Visit the library for a halfway prize when you’ve read 50 books. Once you reach your 100 book goal, stop in for a free book and other goodies to help you get ready for high school.
This enclosed space gives teens a place to work and hang out that is set aside specifically for them and caters to their library needs. Check the Teen Loft Page for more details and images of the new space.
Teen Book Club & Chat on GoodReads
Hey Teens in grades 6-12! Join us for a digital book club. All you need to do is create a free GoodReads account at goodreads.com and join the Orland Park Public Library Online Book Club & Chat group. In this group, you’ll find a special spot for Teens to discuss our current read. Stop by any time! Yes we mean anytime! Today. Tomorrow. Two weeks from now. Anytime! When you stop by, let us know what you think of the book, add in your own questions, discuss your favorite or least favorite parts with others, and more. You can check out a copy of our current read in physical form from the library or you can check out a digital copy from the library’s Ebooks & Digital Services collections . See you at Teen Book Club!
