The votes have been counted in our 8th Annual Teen Choice Awards, and your voices have been heard. Nearly 50 teens filled out ballots this March. I discovered a few surprises, and in one category there is no winner. Without further ado, here are local teens’ choices in 7 categories: Movie, Game, Music, TV, Online Video, App, and Social Network.

Summer Reading at the Niles Library is a big deal! We work for months and months to get ready for kids to come in and play our giant-sized games. Now it is up and ready to play! Here’s how it works.
Here’s what you need to do:
Step One: Come to KidSpace and sign up. You will get a reading folder.
Step Two: Take a free turn on the game! You will already have earned your first Glummy token to spend at the store.
Younger kids play our Read-to-Me game, where they can play animal games with our volunteers. They win a prize every time!
You might be thinking, That sounds like fun, but there’s a lot of other fun stuff to do over the summer. But kids work hard through the school year to improve their reading and pre-reading skills, and if they stop reading over the summer, they will lose what they learned. Studies show that kids who participate in summer reading programs do better in school. So take some time to read this summer, and come to the library and play.

50 teens in grades 7-12 participated in our annual Teen Choice Award voting this spring. The votes have been counted, and your voices have been heard. In addition to creating fun “best of” lists, these results are actually very helpful when it comes to deciding what DVDs, CDs and games to order for our collection. Here are Niles teens’ current favorites:
Guess what? Musical tastes are highly subjective, and Niles teens enjoy a diverse range of artists. Very few people can agree on a single song as their favorite. “Let It Go” from the movie Frozen was the clear winner, although some people choose Idina Menzel‘s version while others prefer Demi Lovato’s. At least no one voted for Adele Dazeem.
November 13, 2010 is National Gaming Day. Libaries are about much more than books, and National Gaming Day is just one way that we show that. Libraries who register for National Gaming Day will participate in a variety of ways. Some will host video game tournaments and others will host board game tournaments. More than 1,800 libraries around the world will celebrate games this year, just the third year of NGD.
We’re celebrating here in Niles with a Yu-gi-oh! card tournament from 2:00-3:30pm. Bring your own deck to join in the fun and for a chance to win prizes.
Anyone who wants to try out Wits & Wagers, the game we received for partcipating in National Gaming Day, is also welcome. Wits & Wagers is a party trivia game where you don’t need to know the answers to the questions in order to play!
