Thank you to everyone that entered this year's Young People's Creative Writing Contest! We had over 600 entries this year -- wow! Below is a full list of winners, and attached are scanned copies of the winning entries. Winners will be honored in an award ceremony on Friday, August 28, 7 pm, at the Hardesty Regional Library's Connor's Cove Theatre. All are welcome to attend the ceremony and hear author Sharon Draper speak about writing, books, and her life as an author. Congratulations to all the winners!
This is the section where we hard working teen librarians tell you what we liked and why you might like it. Check out what's new and what might be new to you.
Have you checked out our Teen Tumblr? You can ask questions, submit content, and see all the cool things teen librarians are posting- gif reviews of books, reasons why their favorites are the best, and lib gifs (gifs that accurately describe all things library related!). Check out our new theme (complete with handy links) and follow us for library updates and cool content!
