Teen Read Week Celebrated at PHS

by Rhayna Waldner


Pierce High celebrated Teen Read Week, a nationally recognized week by the American Library Association, October 16-20. Teen Read Week was created in hopes of bringing more teens to libraries. This past week at Pierce High, students were able to engage in many fun activities in the library.

On Monday, students were able to stop into the library and create blackout poetry. The library supplied students who wanted to participate with discarded books. The entries for this contest went until Thursday morning when they were due. Also on Monday, there was a shredded book competition. Pages of a book were shredded up, and students tried to guess what book it was.

Tuesday was Library Shelfie day. Students were encouraged to take a selfie with their favorite book and share it. Also on Tuesday, students were able to do a scavenger hunt that was in the library.

Makerspace and Straw Art day were on Wednesday. For makerspace, students could make a story using any of the library creation tools. The straw art portion of the day was for snapping a picture with students’ creations to be entered to win a prize.

Thursday was definitely a day that got students in the library. The cupcake decorating day brought many kids into the library to decorate a cupcake that displayed their favorite book. After decoration, the librarians took a picture of the students with their cupcakes. Winners were voted on Friday.

And Friday was a very forgiving day. Amnesty day was for those students who had checked out books and received fines for them. If the fined students went in and asked, they were relieved of all their library fines.

“One thing that was nice to see was the kids who don’t usually go in the library participating in the week’s activities,” librarian Mrs. Crystal Bauermeister said. “It was good for them to notice that there’s more than just books in there even though the library has a lot of books for anyone to read.”
