Recommended Literary Sites

At their last meeting, members of the Teen Library Focus Group reviewed a list of literary websites and chose four favorites. Here they are, along with some of their features: "You can read articles, interviews with celebrities, and book and music reviews, and find out about summer programs." "On this supercool library website, you can read music, movie, and book reviews!" "Read poems by other teens and post your own on the website." "This website features plenty of poems, contests, and a page on publishing your own book!"

What do you think?

In Gary Paulesn's Hatchet, Brian Orbeson spends months on an island with only a hatchet after a terrifying plane crash. To hear his story, come to our Teen Read Aloud hours, starting June 16th at 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.


Your pilot has a heart attack mid-flight, forcing YOU to land the plane, and leaving you stranded on an island to fend for yourself for months... Alone.

What two things would you want with you?
