Summary How do you get teens into your library? Sizzling Summer Reading Programs presents a variety of winning ideas organized by section so you can zero in on what interests you: incentives, thematic programs, novelties, participation, or teens with special needs. Richly illustrated with promotional materials, this book makes a great starting point for your designers & publicists. Start planning your program now & make a teen scene in the library next summer! The nitty gritty on the programs will spark your imagination, such as teens designing game board graphics for Book Quest, a role-playing game developed in the library for and by teens; the independent video store proprietor who jumped at the opportunity to help the library after the competitor from a national chain said no; and the library newsletter that featured X-File-like articles and haikus about spam along with the standard book reviews and program information.
