Reading + Entertainment

Since 2017, the Teen Tastemakers have been Idea Exchange’s teen authority on books, movies, music, and other worthwhile pastimes. If you haven’t had the chance to join our monthly meetings, we have great news:

This year, everybody can be a Teen Tastemaker.

Starting March 1st, sign up for the Virtual Teen Tastemakers on ReadSquared, where you can read and review books and complete missions to help promote the best that Idea Exchange has to offer. For every book you review or mission you complete, you will be entered into a monthly draw to win some great prizes.

You can also join us on Zoom at the end of each month, where we will discuss our favourite books, write content for the library’s website, and work together to improve the virtual experience. Register for our upcoming meetings to earn some extra points (and volunteer hours for school).
