Teen Read & Review Submissions
Help us review the newest teen books and earn yourself some community service!
Read + Review helps the library promote its new YA Books. Students in grades 6-12 can read new titles from the library’s YA collections and submit a review for us to share on our website and Wordpress. Visit our Wordpress to view them all! Students are limited to 10 hours of community service for Read + Review per semester.
If you need help getting started, visit our examples page for detailed explanations of how we award credit.
Follow these instructions to submit your review:
- Read any book from HCPL’s Young Adult collection, originally published within the past two years. New books are the only books eligible for Read + Review credit.
- Write your book review using the form below. The review must be entirely written in your own words; do not plagiarize.
- Remember to check your spelling before you submit and be careful with grammar. Make sure your review meets the minimum length requirements before you submit.
- A teen librarian will email you with directions for claiming your community service hours within two weeks of your submission. Be sure to submit your review well in advance of any community service paperwork deadlines!
Reviews that follow the directions and are written using good grammar and spelling earn one hour of community service credit. Exceptional reviews chosen for publication in Read + Review will earn one additional hour of credit, for a total of two hours of credit.
