  1. How many volunteer hours do we get if we do this?

    • Reviews that follow the directions and are written using good grammar and spelling earn one hour of community service credit. Reviews chosen for publication on the Teen Scene website will earn one additional hour of credit. Limit: 10 hours per semester

  2. Is this only available during the school year?

  3. It feels great when your review gets posted and you know that lots of people are reading it. Three of mine have been posted so far.

  4. Are these Community Service hours going to count towards college

    • Henrico County Public Schools has approved this as service for its various requirements for middle and high school students. We haven’t worked with colleges students, but we could talk to you about the sort of service you need to do.

  5. It looks like the Read+Review list is comprised solely of “New Teen Fiction.” Are there any other genre options, and can we do older books if a review doesn’t exist for them yet?

    • Read + Review is designed to help us highlight new fiction — that’s community service people are performing for us. During the summer, the Summer Reading Club allows people to write reviews of anything they read, though not for community service credit.

  6. I would just like to give a shout-out to my own librarian, who dedicatedly works to help people read and enjoy literature. (The World Needs More #Books)! Thank you again!

  7. This Read & Review really helped me with my community and service! I love it so much and I’m glad I could be part of this great program. It’s so simple, fun, and helps you discover new books!

  8. I love to read! I also love to review! While doing Read and Review, I feel so joyous inside! Thanks for this great opportunity! I just love books so much! :)

    • I could not agree more +Read & Review Really Rocks!
      I have not found one object in pop culture geology that rocks more than Read & Review.
      It truly rocks more than the actual minerals that are found in the Earth.
      Your username just says it all. IBlieve this username really requires us to think: it is powerful, eloquent, and true.
      I love reading!

  9. I wrote a very long review for the Giver by Lois Lowry but when I pressed submit it said the Google Doc is unavailable. I was wondering if you recieved my submission.

  10. I love to read and now I get community service hours for it? Sweet!

  11. Can you do a read & review for the Hunger Games trilogy? And does it really matter about what book you do a read & review on?

    • Read & Review highlights recently released books, so please do refer to the official list, or look in the lease book section. All of the Hunger Games books are too old to be in either of these categories. The teen librarian at your branch will be happy to help you find something you might like.

  12. can u do it for the Mortal Instruments series? im pretty sure those series are pretty new
