Teen Read Week is the 3rd week in October, but the Spartanburg Public Library always celebrates it for the whole month! This year we’re having our 7th annual Design a Bookmark Contest. The winning design will be professionally printed and distributed at all SCPL locations and at the winning teen’s school library. This year the prize is a video camera!
As part of our Teen Read Week celebration, we’re having our second annual reading festival for teens, teencentric! It will be on Saturday, October 15th from 1-5pm in the Barrett Room at the Headquarters Library. Our guest authors this year are Cinda Williams Chima, author of the Heir Chronicles and the Seven Realms series, and Alan Gratz, author of the Horatio Wilkes series. Local teen musician Noah Guthrie will also perform and we’ll have free popcorn, cotton candy, drinks AND a photo booth just for teens!
