Monthly Teen Book Giveaway (95th)

Monday, October 03, 2016 at 3:00 PM -- 95th Street Library
Bookworms can read and share their thoughts on the books they are reading. Stop by the lower level teen services desk for the Teen Book Giveaway. Teens can take home (and keep!) one shiny new book or Advanced Reader's Copy (ARC) each month. All that is asked in return is that participants write a review (the good, the bad and the ugly) for the book taken and bring it back to the library within the next month. Reviews will be posted on the teen section of our website.
