News October 21, The prevalence of video games, TV and the Internet makes it tough to get and maintain the attention of teenagers, but area librarians aren't giving up. Alison Lambart, youth services manager at Bud Werner Memorial Library, directed area teens to a national Web site so they could vote for their favorite book much like reality shows have audiences vote for their favorite singer or dancer.

This year's theme, "Get Active Your Library," is meant to encourage teens not only to become more frequent library visitors but also to lead fuller, more active lives, a message seconded by popular young adult novelist Edward Bloor. Bloor's first three novels-- TangerineCrusaderand Story Time --take place in diverse settings--on sports fields, in the video arcade of a shopping mall, and in a haunted magnet school, respectively--but the protagonists in the stories are drawn to unraveling the mysteries about themselves and their places within the community. In TangerinePaul Fisher, a legally blind soccer player, seeks to find an identity separate from that of his brother, a football star--and a sociopath; while in CrusaderRoberta Ritter emerges from her isolating daily routine to help solve a hate crime.
