READ pictures to be taken this week

Happy Read Across America!

Want a chance to leave your face hanging in the high school once you leave?  Here’s your chance!  All this week, the librarian will be taking READ pictures in the library.  The only requirement for the picture is you need to have a book.  You can be by yourself, with a friend, or with your entire posse!

Then, next week during Teen Tech Week (March 7-11), be sure to stop in the library.  There will be lots of fun Teen Tech Week activities to participate in and you will have a chance to vote on your favorite READ picture.  One lucky picture will win, be blown up into a poster, and hung up in the library.  The winner will be announced the following week and you can see the winning poster in the library soon thereafter.

READ pictures will ONLY be taken this week (February 28-March 4), so hurry in today!

Good luck!
