Pay the Piper & Pass The Book!

From Mr. Jewitt
Teen Specialist - Savage Branch

"2010-11 is the second year of Howard County Library’s Pass the Book initiative. Beginning October 18, we will once again be distributing specially marked copies of a YA novel. This year's selection is Pay the Piper by Jane Yolen and Adam Stemple. As last year, we'll begin to distribute these books during Teen Read Week, beginning Monday October 18 - Mrs. Singleton will be our point of contact if you're interested in this special program!

Register the book’s number at
hclibrary.org/passthebook/

Read the book & participate in challenges and quizzes on the website. Pass the book to another friend who will register the book again!

Readers can return to the website throughout the year to track where these books have traveled, and to participate in online book discussions, quizzes and other activities. This year we have passed copies of The Secret Hour by Scott Westerfeld to China, England, Ireland, Kamchatka, and Norway, and to seventeen states including Alaska. We’re excited to see where Pay the Piper will travel in 2011!

Hey Bookgal! I specifically asked Mrs. Singleton to hold a copy of this book for you when I passed them along! Did you get it?!

I'm back from Chicago and had a great trip! Learned a lot from other school librarians and was honored to get that award thingy! Fun times!
