Can you read a whole book from start to finish during April break? We know you can! It can be a novel, a nonfiction book, manga, or a graphic novel—whatever you like. The important thing is that you are reading while school is out.
To accept our Teen Speed Read Challenge, pick out your book and pick up a review sheet from the Reference desk or download the form here. When you finish your book, just write a review, bring it into the library, and pick out a free prize book! We know some of you can read lots of books in one week, but we have to limit the prize books to one per teen (grades 6-12). Bring in your review by April 23rd to receive your prize. Happy Reading!
