SLDL to mark Teen Read Week with programs

Spring Lake District Library will celebrate Teen Read Week, Oct. 16-22, with special events and programs centered on this year's theme, "Picture It! @ Your Library.'
Oct 17, 2011


The library will be hosting a movie poster contest for teens. Ages 10 and up can create a movie poster from their favorite fiction book or graphic novel. The posters need to be at least 8.5-by-11 inches and can be hand-drawn or computer-generated.

Entries will be separated into two age divisions: 10-14 and 15-18. Each participant will receive a coupon for a free DVD rental. Posters can be turned through Oct. 22.

The entries that receive the most votes from Oct. 24–30 will win the contest. Winners will be announced Nov. 1 and will receive a $30 gift certificate to Subway.    

Other Teen Read Week events include:
— Graphic Art Workshop with Sally Salkowski, 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18 (pre-registration is required).
