I hope all of you who signed up for summer reading are still reading! Five prizes are still being drawn weekly. If you haven’t already, turn in slips tracking your minutes read. Even if you haven’t won yet, you could still win a prize at the end of summer reading picnic.


Which reminds me, watch the mail over the next week.  Teens signed up for summer reading will be receiving invitations to the End of Summer Reading Picnic which is coming up soon!  Look for the information for details but I can tell you this: IT’S GONNA BE GOOD!

Attention All Aspiring (and Actual) Film Makers

Hey Teens of Peters Township! What are you doing with your summer?

Ever consider making a short film?

This summer at the library the teen program is hosting a short film contest just for teens called “A Rendering of Change.”  The topic of the contest is to involve “change” in your short film in some way or another. The film should be no more than 10 minutes in length and to submit it we ask you post it to YouTube with “peterstownshippubliclibrary” tagged. Films must be uploaded to YouTube by Monday July 28th. On Thursday July 31st at 4pm a film festival will take place in the teen room where the short films will be viewed and voted on by the audience. All submitted films will be shown. A time table will be written a few days before the film fest after all entries are received so friends and family can come and be sure to see your film! 

There will be a few different ways to win prizes and YES there will be prizes. Stay tuned for more details.


UNTIL THEN… better get filming!
