March Program: The Golden (Teen Book) Trailer Awards

Please register soon if you’re interested in this program — it’s this Sunday!

Sure, you see movie trailers every time you go to the theater or turn on the television. But did you know there are BOOK trailers, too? They’re increasingly popular ways to advertise hot new books and they’re just as fun to watch as movie trailers.

Let’s be judgey judgey like the Oscars and pick the best and worst book trailers for teen books at our viewing party. We’ll watch a series of book trailers while enjoying popcorn, pizza, and drinks, and then we’ll vote for the best and worst in several categories.

When: Sunday, March 6, from 2-4 p.m.
Where: Englewood Public Library, Anderson Room

We’ll judge the trailers in the following categories:

Best All Around Book Trailer
Worst All Around Book Trailer
Best Author Appearance in a Book Trailer
Most Annoying Author Appearance in a Book Trailer
Trailer Most Likely to Actually Sell the Book
Trailer Least Likely to Actually Sell the Book

Please register for this program by calling 303-762-2555 or stopping by the reference desk, so we know how much pizza to order!! Finally, if you have any suggestions for book trailers we should watch, please nominate them here and I will collect them.


Give us your feedback and take our survey!

I know everyone is busy with school, after school activities like sports and clubs, and work, and attending library programs can be hard when you’re pressed for time. Please help us out and take this super short survey and let me know when you’d prefer to have teen programs held at the library. After school? Evenings? Weekends? Let me know when you’re available. Programs coming up will include an Oscar-inspired Book Trailer Award Party (where we watch a series of book trailers and pick the best and worst YA book trailers of the year); Wii gaming programs and competitions; craft programs such as making your own magnetic poetry kit for National Poetry Month; comics programs for Free Comic Book Day in May; and more, but we want to hold them when YOU’RE available. Thanks for your input!

Here’s the link to the survey (it’s also available on the right-hand menu under Blogroll):
