KidsTakingSAT.pngWith the assistance of our Teens4Teens student volunteer group, we've put together another SAT Practice Test to be held on Monday September 24th at 4:00 pm.  (Details here.)  This is not an official test but just a run-through so students apprehensive about taking the actual exam will know what to expect on October 6th or later.  (Info on the actual SAT tests can be found here.) 

Seating is limited (20 seats) but we still have some room left.  You can register online for our practice test here

bppkfinderapp0918.pngLast June we mentioned that the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) was offering a new Teen Book Finder app that  "highlights books and media from YALSA's awards and selected book and media lists".  Now we've provided an available link for you to download the application onto your iPod, iPod Touch or iPad.  You can find the link on our "Read This" page here, then scroll down to "Readers and Writers".  Or simply go to the iTunes App Store  directly by clicking here

If you do download it, let us know how you like it.  We'll share your responses here on the blog.  Thanks.
