Books with Bite

Vampires and Werewolves and Ghosts, Oh My!
October is Teen Read Month at Burbank Public Library, and this October’s theme, propelled by the fascination with all creatures supernatural, is “Books With Bite.” Burbank teens, grades 6 through 12, are invited to write a short book report on their favorite scary page-turner (or any favorite book) and submit it to any of the three Burbank libraries by October 31. Each report written gives a chance to win a pair of AMC movie tickets! Winners will be notified by November 7. Are you stumped for a book to read? Ask your friendly and knowledgeable teen librarians! Melissa Elliott at Central branch, Anarda Williams at Buena Vista branch, and Melissa Gwynne at Northwest will be happy to steer you towards a book that will give you chills! (But if you don’t want to visit The Nightmare Academy, or find the relationship between Blood and Chocolate, never fear! we can refer you to less frightening fare.)
