One way to get teenagers into libraries: Have a party and invite the kids to come as their favorite character in the bestselling “Twilight” series of vampire romance novels. You might show the movie “Twilight” and play trivia games, as the Fairhope Public Library in Fairhope, Alabama, did.


  1. When the sixth Harry Potter book was released, my library threw a release party. We had games, “classes”, a feast, the Sorting Hat. I volunteered as Potions Master at it, and had a great time. So did everyone else!

    • That Harry Potter party sounds like a lot of fun. And I’d bet that some libraries might have success with both kinds of parties, because J.K. Rowling’s books appeal to a slightly younger age group than Stephenie Meyer’s.

      Thanks for the great suggestion.

  2. That would work great-espeacilly for girl whose eyes would glaze over at the sight of Robert Pattinson.
