Friday, October 1



 This year’s theme for TeenTober is, “What will you discover at the library?” TeenTober is a month-long celebration by libraries every October to celebrate teens. TeenTober replaced Teen Read Week which allows all libraries the flexibility to celebrate all types of literacies. Visit your local library anytime during the year, especially during TeenTober and check out some of our programs and resources that we offer.

Our libraries have been collecting broken or old toys all through the month of September to make Frankentoys. Some branches may have in-person craft programs and other branches may offer a take-and-make craft for teens. You would take the damaged toys and make them into a super cool Frankentoy. It’s a great way to recycle toys without throwing them out in the garbage. After you are finished, share your creation to our Facebook page, Central Mississippi Regional Library System (CMRLS), and tag it with #cmrlsteentober. Please check with your local library for more info, or you can check out our Calendar of Events page on our website.

The topmost circulated books are.

One of is Lying by Karen M. McManus – For five students, a detour into detention ends in    murder.

The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas – A 16-year-old girl sees a police officer kill her friend.

The Crown by Kiera Cass - Eadlyn didn’t think she would find a real partner among the Selection’s thirty-five suitors, let alone true love. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and in The Crown, Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more difficult—and more important—than she ever expected.
