Teen Read Week

Express Your Opinionated Side

Write a review of the most recent book you've read for the web site. Turn it in at your library branch and get a Library coupon good for $1 off your fines, toward your printing, check out a feature DVD, or snag some ear buds. And, each time you turn in a review it gets entered into a drawing for an iTunes gift card!

Share Your Artistic Side

Photography Contest begins during Teen Read Week! If you are between the ages of 13 and 19 and live in the Kansas City area, submit up to 2 original photos on the theme Beyond Reality. Turn in your printed photos or photos on disc to any branch or email to Crystal Faris, Director of Teen Services. Sumbited photos and discs will not be returned. Contest ends January 31 with winning images displayed during Teen Tech Week in March 2010. Branch winners will receive Best Buy gift certificates and the Grand Prize winner will receive an amaazing Canon digital camera.
