On Monday May 20th at 4 pm, a writer’s group just for teens will hold its first meeting at the Main Library. Are you looking for a peer group to provide feedback on your writing? This is the place for you. Bring a piece of writing that you’ve been working on to share. We will also be planning future group meetings so bring your ideas! This program is teen inspired and will be teen run. The Library will help the group with local author visits and critiques. All teen writers, whether you write fiction, non-fiction, poetry or blogs, are welcome!
Would you like to brighten the day of a military Service man or woman? Writing a short letter helps brings a bit of home to those in the military serving abroad. See Irene for tips on writing the letters and your treat when you drop off the letter.

Graphic Novel – This book deserves 5 stars. This book is about a girl named Tohru Honda who finds a family cursed by the Zodiac. If I could give this book another title, it would be Zodiac’s Curse. The important characters in this book are Tohru Honda, Yuki Sohma, Kyo Sohma, Snigure Sohma, Kagura Sohma, Ou Hana and the Yuki fan club girls plus Tohru’s cousins and grandpa. If I could smack any of the characters in this book upside the head, it would be Kyo, because he hurts Tohru in the beginning. I would also smack the Yuki Fan Club girls, because they tease Tohru too. Tohru is my favorite character in the book, because her parents passed away and she still is happy. I’m not sure if I would recommend this book to a friend, because most people don’t like anime. Sad, but true. I also watched the series on television. It is pretty good. I like the episode when Tohru’s friends come over to the Sohma house. Review by Tara Brown

Fiction – This book deserves 5 stars. This book is about a girl named Delilah and a magic fairytale book. The important characters in the book are Delilah and Oliver. If I could smack any character in the book upside the head, it would be Delilah’s Mom. She doesn’t want her reading the book. My favorite character is Oliver. I appreciate that he is smart. I would recommend this book to a friend, because it makes you want to read more.
