2. Submit your book review (written in your own words; do not plagiarize) using the form below and within 2 weeks, a teen librarian will email you with directions for claiming your community service hours. Remember to check your spelling before you submit and be careful with grammar.
Read these guidelines before you submit:
Book selections must follow guidelines in step 1. Responses must meet minimum length requirements and must answer the questions in your own words. Remember to check your spelling before you submit and be careful with grammar.

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 on the Teen Scene website will earn one additional hour of credit, for a total of two hours of credit.
Because we might post your review online, we tend to be extra-cautious about issues of copyright and plagiarism. Please help us by making sure your review is entirely original. Here are some helpful links about these important issues:
