The TWR, or Teen Winter Reading for all you not down with the library lingo, is almost upon us. January 6-February 18, 2017 is when you get to read (and attend programs) for a chance to win a brand new…CAR! Just kidding. Sorry, library budgets and all that. However, I hope you’ll be excited for the chance to win the ACTUAL grand prize of a brand new…Homido Virtual Reality Headset! Yeah, pretty spiffy, huh? This headset is compatible with both Android and iOS  smart phones and will transport you into a 3D experience from your smart phone. Excited? I know I am! So, back to how to win this most amazing of all prizes (that’s not a new car).

Everything will be at the Main Circulation Desk. If you don’t know where that is, walk around confused until someone asks you if you need help locating something. Then, fill out a Registration Card (just once) and turn it in at the Main Circulation Desk. Following that, grab a review slip (or more) and read a book (or attend a teen program between January 6 and February 18). Once you’ve finished reading the book in question (or attending the teen program), fill out a review slip on what you liked/disliked about that book (or teen program). Simple, really. Then cross into Mordor and drop the review slip in to the fires of Mount Doom…or, drop it off at the ballot box labeled “Teen Winter Reading” located at the Main Circulation Desk–whichever is simpler. Keep filling out and turning in review slips to increase you chance at winning the grand prize! The grand prize winner will be announced the following Monday, February 20, 2017.

May the odds be ever in your favor.

Your most awesome and humble Teen Librarian,
