Teen Read Week 10/12-10-18:
Redesign a Teen Book Jacket
To celebrate Teen Read Week we are holding a Redesign a Teen Book Jacket contest. Just choose a Young Adult book you think needs an updated cover and redesign it to entice someone to read it. Covers will be judged on creativity and how well it goes with the book’s story. The winning teen will receive an Amazon gift card and their work will be
displayed in the new Teen Spot section. Submissions must be turned in to the main library at either the Reference Desk, Teen Spot section or the branch library’s Circulation Desk. All submissions are due at the end of Teen Read Week on Saturday, Oct. 18. Make sure to put your name and phone number on the back of your submission.
