Teens

Battle of the Books (6th & 7th grades)

Get a group of friends together (no more than 5 people per team), start reading, and prepare to battle.  You and your team will travel over to Quaker Valley Middle School to face off with other teams from Allegheny, Beaver, and Butler counties in a trivia competition that will prove who knows there books the best!  The top 3 placing teams in each battle will receive gift cards, plus there’s lot of giveaways and treats the night of the battle.

So if you’ve got a competitive spirit, love to read, and just want to kick some butt, Teen Battle of the Books is for you! And you don’t have to be from Moon to participate… battle participants can come from anywhere.  Moon, Quaker Valley, Cornell, OLSH, Seneca Valley, Montour Propel Charter School, Lincoln Park Performing Arts School, Ambridge, Hopewell, Central Valley, Pine-Richland, and St. James are just a few of the schools who’ve battled over the years.

Kids

1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Moon Township Public Library participates in the nation-wide literacy program 1000 Books Before Kindergarten which asks parents to read 1000  books to your infant/toddler before they start kindergarten.  Reading to children increases their learning potential so they will be ready to hit the ground running when they step into their first classroom.

Stop by the library for a reading log (and free tote bag to lug all your books around) and get started! At every 100 books completed, return to the library and your kid will get a prize.

You can download logs online or install the iPhone and Android apps.

Battle of the Books (4th & 5th grades)

Battle of the Books is our annual book trivia competition held in the spring. Our children’s librarian carefully selects ten books for each grade, and creates trivia questions around them. You’ll get to create a team, think up a cool team name, and even make team costumes or props. After you’ve read and created, you’ll meet for one night with all the other teams to battle it all out! Amazing prizes are at stake, plus you’ll get to read some awesome books in the process. Proceed with caution, this battle gets intense!

Summer Adventure

One of our biggest programs is the annual Summer Adventure program. We like to start things off with a bang, kicking off the Challenge with a huge blowout event! Once registered, the kids have the summer to read as many books as they can, come to special library events, and fill out our summer Bingo Cards. The more you do, the better your chances! Each of those tasks will earn you tickets for cool prizes. This year we will be inviting the most devoted kids to a pizza pool party to celebrate their wins! Feel free to call or visit the library to learn more.
