Teens can win a Kindle Fire

Posted by heather in Untagged 

kindle fire contest

Teen book review contest

The Columbia County Rural Library District and the Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library are sponsoring a teen book review contest and the grand prize is a Kindle Fire. It's cold outside and that means it's time to cozy up with a good book. Express yourself by letting the world know how you feel about books. You can write up to 5 reviews to enter, and the best ones will be published on this blog!

This contest is for students in grades 6-12.

You are allowed to enter reviews for up to five different books.

The judging will be blind: meaning that the judges will not know who you are when they read your review.

Winning entries will be typed, double spaced in 12 point font. They shouldn’t be more than 4 pages long.

Reviews will be judged on content, grammar, and clarity of thought. Your review doesn’t have to be perfect, but it does need to make sense and be well written. Proof read, proof read, proof read! If you need help writing a good review, ask for help at the library! We’re here to help!

Please don’t put your name on the book review. Attach this form to the front.

Check out the Teen page for information on writing a winning book review.

November

Everybody Reads book discussion

Saturday, November 15 at 5pm

Have you read The Girls of no Return by Erin Saldin? There's still time before the book discussion with Librarian Jill on November 15. Everybody Reads is a regional reading program where a single book, written by an emerging regional author is chosen for the whole community to read and discuss.


the girls of no returnCUT meets HATCHET in this lacerating debut about girls, knives and redemption.

The Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area stretches across two million acres in northern Idaho. In its heart sits the Alice Marshall School, where fifty teenage girls come to escape their histories and themselves.

Lida Wallace has tried to negate herself in every way possible. At Alice Marshall, she meets Elsa Boone, a fierce native Idahoan; Jules, who seems too healthy to belong at the school; and Gia Longchamps, whose glamour entrances the entire camp.

As the girls prepare for a wilderness trek, Lida is both thrilled and terrified to be chosen as Gia's friend. But everyone has their secrets--their "Things" they try to protect; and when those come out, the knives do as well.THE GIRLS OF NO RETURN is a bold and powerful debut.

November's reading incentive

Let your kid be the hero of Thanksgiving! If your child reads in the library for 15 minutes he or she can enter to win a yummy apple pie. Stop into the library and get reading! The drawing will be held November 25th.

 

Cookies on Parade November 28th 1-4

The biggest Black Friday event of the year! The Friends of the library's annual fundraiser in the Delany. Buy delicious cookies by the pound.
