Featured Program

Read - Review - Win!

 

December 1 - February 14

Listen up all you 6th through 12th graders!

Teen Winter Reading at Roselle Public Library is back! 

1 Book Review = 1 Entry

Starting on December 1 through February 14 you have the opportunity to write original book reviews for a chance to win some great prizes.  Every book review you submit counts as 1 entry into the prize giveaway, to be held after the program is over, and there is NO LIMIT on the number of entries you can submit before February 14, so read and review as much as you can!

Not an RPLD card holder?  No problem!  I want to encourage EVERY TEEN to read over this winter, so if you are in 6th-12th grade, YOU CAN SUBMIT A BOOK REVIEW no matter where or if you have a Library card!  

This is not just a middle school thing, either!  I have lots of LPHS and Conant students every year submit book reviews for a chance to win, so go ahead...read and review!

What's in it for you, you might ask?  One lucky winner will the recipient of their very own KINDLE FIRE!!  Plus, we will be giving away free books, gift cards to Barnes & Noble, and like always....CANDY! 

What do you need to write for a complete book review?  

  • Title
  • Author
  • AT LEAST 5 THOUGHTFUL SENTENCES without giving away the ending (the more detailed you get the better!)
  • Why you picked it up
  • Why you finished it
  • Who you would recommend this book to.

And of course your contact info (first and last name, plus your email or phone number) so I know to call if you win!!  Simple, quick, and to the point!

Pick up a paper book review form at the Reference Desk, in the YA area, or save a tree and go through our website to fill out our online book review form!   It only takes one book review to win, but there is no limit to the number of book reviews you can submit, so get reading today!  Who knows?  Maybe your book review will be the Grand Prize winner??
