Don’t forget to cast your vote in our Battle of the Books! At Brighouse this week, the battle is between The Hungers Games and My Hero Academia. We’ve already lost of my personal favourites, so make your voice heard and vote for your’s before they get eliminated.
Also, every branch is doing they’re own Teen Battle of the Books, so you can head to your closest branch to vote.
Join us for an all-day event where you will work with a team to build your own video game. You will receive training from specialists, then join your team to create a game that will be showcased later in the day.

We are doing our Annual Teen Poetry Contest again this year! We are always excited to celebrate Poetry Month and can’t wait to read all the teen submissions. Here are some of the details about the contest:
Hey teens! Did you finish a really good book and wish you had someone to talk about it with? The Teen Book Club at Richmond Public Library is perfect for you! Each meeting we will be discussing and reading various books with a genre theme each month. This club will not only motivate you to read during the school year, but also improve vocabulary and articulation! This club is open to all teens whether you are an avid reader or trying to become one. Our meetings are on Saturdays, once a month from 2-3pm. If you are interested, please sign up here!
Pop-up books aren’t just for kids. Check out this pop-up book for The Walking Dead–it’s not for the faint of heart…
We are going to work together to create something quite unique and sinister. Our spooky book will walk readers through a haunted house. With the addition of augmented reality, readers will meet some otherworldly characters (HINT: you guys + green screen magic).
