Interesting Reader Society - There Should Be One At Every Library!!!

A Colorado Library System with a great idea to keep teens involved in reading...

The Interesting Reader Society (IRS) is a group of teenage volunteers representing many of Larimer County’s junior and senior high schools. They hold meetings once a month to review books for their newsletter and to plan special teen activities. They also help the librarians in the Teen section at the Main and Harmony libraries.

You may qualify if you are:
  • In 6th grade through 12th grade
  • Male or female
  • Tall enough to reach standard book shelves
  • Of undetermined weight, but generally considered to be a "heavy reader"
  • Known to frequent libraries, bookstores, and paperback racks of local emporiums
  • Suffering from a reading addiction, and usually have one or two books with you at all times
  • Guilty of ever reading by flashlight under the covers at night when you are supposed to be asleep
Fill out an application for membership (PDF format/191K) and return to the adult information desks at the Main Library, 201 Peterson St., or the Harmony Library, 4616 South Shields.

Check out the latest from the IRS on the School Library Journal's website.
