Fun Fact:

The most requested title in our library for 2010 is The Hunger Games. We currently have 6 copies in our library, and good thing! The book has been put on hold a total of 40 times, and has been checked out over 90 times!

The 2nd most requested title is its sequel, Catching Fire. The third book in the trilogy will be released this summer.

 From the


 "One of our goals each month is to inspire you to read --- and to keep reading. We have found that required reading lists for school --- especially summer reading lists --- are not exactly inspiring. Thus we have created what we think is the Ultimate Teen Reading List --- more than 300 titles that we think are perfect choices for reading and discussing. Our dream is that schools will use this list to help them make their own for summer reading or, even better, suggest that students just read what they want from this list."
