The Avon Youth Services and the Avon Free Public Library are partnering on this month’s book talk.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Registration required, open to teens in Grades 7-12.

So this month, Miss Marisa will recommend books about teens and mental health (all different conditions and genres). 

Teens can sign up and share about a book you are reading or a good book you have read.

Teens also welcome to listen in to get inspired about what to read next.

How can I win a gift card?

Everyone who signs up and attends the program will get their name entered once to be one of the 3 teen winners of:

A $10 Starbucks gift card, a $10 Starbucks gift card, and a $10 Dunkin Donuts gift card. 

Teens who sign up and share about a book they are reading or a good book they have read: will get their name entered a second time for the gift card raffle!

How can I get a free bag of goodies, mental health resources, and a free book?

After the program, teens can pick up a bag of goodies containing swag, more information about mental health resources, and pick out a free teen book from the selection at the 2nd Floor Kid’s Desk!



Prior to the program, first time program attendees may receive a call to confirm registration information for safety issues. If we are unable to confirm information, you will not be let in the day of the program.
