Teen Read Week

Teen Read Week is an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA).  This year’s theme is Picture It @ your library®, which encourages teens to read graphic novels and other illustrated materials, seek out creative books, or imagine the world through literature, just for the fun of it. Libraries across the world celebrate Teen Read Week with a variety of special events and programs aimed at encouraging teens to read for pleasure and to visit their libraries for free reading materials.

This year, the Adams County Library System is celebrating Teen Read Week by hosting two events at the Gettysburg Library.

Duct Tape Creations

It’s super easy to make things out of duct tape.  Super fun, too.  And once you get going it can be really addictive.  If you’re not careful you might even end up with a whole new wardrobe!
