Why Should I Bring My Students?
At the MCTBF, teens have the opportunity to meet YA authors they normally would not have the opportunity to meet, giving them the chance to build connections with other teens and authors. In addition, authors will speak about their books and various topics, increasing attendees’ cultural awareness.
*Lunch is provided by In-N-Out Burgers for the first 200 teen attendees.
For questions regarding the MCTBF please contact Youth Services Librarian, Monica. 817-427-6818 North Richland Hills Library 9015 Grand Ave., North Richland Hills, TX
