Actually, October is National Book Month, but it's also Star Wars Reads Day (October 5), Teen Read Week (October 13 - 19), and All Hallow's Read (October 31), and they're all great reasons to give away books.
It's Free Book Month here at the Marion Library because, with so many great teen books being published all the time, we're running out of room for the books we have. That means we have to discard books that haven't checked out in a while, but we're giving you the chance to dig through them first. You never know what you might find! Keep checking the Teen area all through October for a chance to grab a new favorite read that's yours to keep! (Really, we don't want them back.) Happy October!
If you're looking for something a little newer than what's on our Free Books cart, check out this year's nominees and previous winners for the National Book Award (for teens' and kids' books).
Teen Read Week is all about Reading for the Fun of It. Check out this massive list of the winners for the last ten years of the Teens' Top Ten Award. Don't forget to vote for this year's nominees by October 19.
