Teen Book Takeout: Fall Session

Teen Book Takeout (TBT) is a service we are thrilled to offer for our teens patrons! Sign up each season to get a bag of 2-3 YA books personally selected to match your interests as well as one book that matches a monthly theme. We'll also be sneaking in lots of extra goodies and snacks.

Fall Monthly Book Themes:

  • September: Swordtember (fantasy, fencing, swords and adventure)
  • October: Monster Mash (cryptids, creatures, ghouls, monsters, horror, thriller, kaiju)
  • November: ("Won't you take me to") Steampunky Town!

Please note: this service requires a library card to check the books out to you. If you do not yet have a library card, please visit us at the library during opening hours, or sign up with our online form by clicking here

How it works:

  1. Fill out the form below to sign up for the FALL session of Teen Book Takeout (September, October, November)
  2. Pick up your TBT bags the first week in September, October, and November (3 bags total)
  3. Each bag will include 1 or 2 hand-picked library books for you based on your answers in the registration form, and 1(or sometimes more!) library book that matches a monthly theme 
  4. Each bag will also include sweet and salty snacks, bookish papercrafts, and other small goodies
  5. Library books must be returned by their due date (included in the TBT bag)
  6. To continue receiving TBT books after November, you must sign up for the NEXT season (Winter) with a new form
  7. If at any point you wish to cancel your TBT registration, just email lharker@pentictonlibrary.ca to give your space to someone on the wait list
  8. Fill out review pages for each book you read as well as TBT feedback forms for a chance to win other prizes!

The fine print:

  • must be aged 13-18 to participate
  • must have a library card to participate (Penticton & BC One Card are okay!)
  • space is currently limited to 8 slots with a wait list opening up after those slots are filled
  • if books are not picked up 2 months in a row your spot may be given to someone on the wait list
  • TBT is a free service 

For any other questions or more information, please email Lara at lharker@pentictonlibrary.ca
