Operation TBD & WOMS book exchange

April 16th is Support Teen Literature Day, and the WOMS library of course supports teen literature, so we're going to have a celebration. Through the efforts of readergirlz, GuysLitWire, YALSA, and publishers, teen patients in pediatric hospitals across the United States will receive 8,000 new young-adult novels, audiobooks, and graphic novels.

Inciting all to participate in Operation TBD in its drive to spur reading on a national scale, readergirlz invites teens and YA authors to leave a book in a public place on April 16th. So here's what we're going to do at WOMS:

We're going to have a book exchange.

To get in on the action, here's what you need to do:

*Between now and April 14th, bring middle school appropriate books from home to the library for donation (PLEASE ask your parents FIRST).
*Get a ticket when you donate

On the 16th, we'll have a book exchange at lunch. Students who have tickets will get first chance at the books, and then anyone else who wants to may take a book.

Fun and FREE!!!!! Woohoo!
