Another Message From Meg Cabot


The author of The Princess Diaries recorded another special message for Teen Read Week. Listen to Meg Cabot here.


How to listen:

You can listen to the podcast right on your computer using Windows Media Player (Windows) or RealPlayer (Mac). You probably already have one of these installed on your computer if you've listened to audio before, if not, download for free using the links above.

You can also download it to any brand of MP3 player and listen on the go, in the car, while you work out, on the bus, wherever! (Some people have even been known to download the podcasts, burn them to CD and play them in their car stereo, home stereo or portable CD player.)


The easiest way to subscribe (and make sure you don't miss our next podcast) is to download "JUICE" a podcast aggregator, or podcatcher.

A podcatcher is software that allows you to subscribe to your favorite podcasts using their RSS feed. When new content or episodes are available, your podcatcher will automatically download them for you, and then you’re ready to listen to them on your computer or transfer them to your MP3 player!



We have step-by-step instructions on how to subscribe with Juice, iTunes, or Yahoo Podcasts on our website.

DDR!

We had our first Dance Dance Revolution contest last week. Sixteen teens came to play. It was non-stop excitement. We had two winners for the night. Demi W. got the most perfects in the beginner category and Devon G. got the most perfects in the light category. For anyone who didn't win last week or couldn't make it, we are having another DDR contest on Saturday, October 28 from 1:00-4:00 pm.

Also, stop in on Saturday, October 14 from 1:00-4:00 pm and Wednesday, October 18 from 5:00-7:00 pm for our first ever Karaoke Day! Come and show off your pipes!
