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.
