Summer may be over, but the fun continues @ your Library

This summer, teens across Hillsborough County attended events at their local libraries and submitted more than 200 book reviews. Now that you're back at school, you have even more reasons to visit the library. 

The library has free programs for teens and a ton of great resources for your school projects. 

Whether you enjoy gaming, anime, crafts, movies or books, the library offers programs. Don't see anything for you? Join a TAB group and receive community service hours for volunteering at the library and helping the librarians plan events for teens.

Own the Night, Own an iPod

If you want to win an iPod for participating in the HCPLC's summer reading program, you still have two weeks to earn tickets.

Remember that you can earn tickets for writing reviews for the books you read this summer.

Jessica read Forever by Judy Blume and highly recommends this book about first love that "ends unexpectedly and leaves you emotionally attached."

If you are looking for a great series, Jasean recommends the Artemis Fowl series.  In Jasean's review of the conclusion of the Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer, he says that "the Artemis Fowl series is amazing and had me hanging off my seat."

Two Book Flip participants recommend the Skyship Academy:  the Pearl Wars by Nick James.  According to Garren. "this book was really cool... it was in the future on earth.  Earth was destroyed and there are two groups... the skyship people and the unified party." 

Keep reading and reviewing!
