Looking for a summer read you don’t have to return? Check out the Teen Repurposed Reads bookshelf at ImagineIF Libraries!

As part of Summer Experience 2023, the library is giving away books previously housed in the young adult collection. These books have been weeded (removed from the collection) and are still in great condition. There are many reasons that libraries weed books: if they haven’t been checked out in a long time, are damaged or grungy, or contain outdated or irrelevant information. Removing books from the collection makes way for new and exciting items.

By taking a weeded book home you’re giving it a second chance to be loved and appreciated!

Head on over to the Teen Repurposed Reads bookshelf at your local ImagineIF Library and grab a book (or two or three) before they’re gone! While you’re there, don’t forget to pick up a Summer Experience Gameboard and join the teen expedition to score some epic prizes.

Here’s a sneak peek of titles you might come across:

Some Kind of Animal by Mari Romasco-Moore
A thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Dig by A. S. King
A coming-of-age story that explores deep themes of family, identity, and trauma.

More Than Just a Pretty Face by Syed M. Masood
A heartwarming romance that celebrates diversity and individuality.

19 Love Songs by David Levithan
A collection of short stories that captures all the different ways we experience love.

Our job is to provide free and open access to books and information. With hands-on activities and experiences for all ages, we work to transform vision, dreams and desires into reality.
