Youth Book Review Crew

(TAGS: Youth)

Do you want to earn volunteer community service hours but it is difficult for you to get to the library? Do you love books and sharing your opinions?

You can earn volunteer hours by submitting book reviews. Submit one book review and earn a ½ hour of volunteer time, providing the review meets several requirements below and is posted on the library website.

Write in your own words

  • Write 75 to 100
  • Tell us a little bit about the story. Keep the spoiler alert in mind!
  • Convince us to read the book or not.

Work at your own speed, earn the number of volunteer hours you like and on your schedule right from home. The completed review can be dropped off at any branch.

We have provided a Review Form to make it easy to work at your own speed, earn the number of volunteer hours you like and on your schedule right from home. The completed review can be dropped off at any branch.
