All participants will be entered into a raffle for a copy of the book, and those who have read the book and write a short review of it at the party will be entered into a raffle for a copy of the movie. Please continue to submit your Teen Summer Reading Program bookmark reviews (available at all the service desks at the library) at our Reference Desk to be entered into a weekly raffle for free teen books.
