Potomac Community Library eTeen News June 2013

“One must always be careful of books and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.”
                                                -Cassandra Clare in Clockwork Angel
 
                Are you looking forward to a fun, steamy summer?  Cool off at the library by grabbing some hot YA reads or coming to one of our teen programs.  Don’t forget, you can also download eBooks and eAudio books to your computer, tablet, or smartphone.  We now have nearly 150 popular magazines on entertainment, science and technology, crafting, and more available for digital download! 
 
Most important, don’t forget to register for Wild Reads, our summer reading program where you earn coupons and prizes (would you like a chance to win an eReader?) just for reading.   Hope to see you at Potomac Library soon!
