26 submissions in total were received over the summer. On September 27th, HCPL teen librarians met to review the submissions and select a winning piece that would work well in an online format and capture the awesomeness of being a teen in Henrico. We encourage everybody to view the album of all submissions: 2017 Teen Art Contest. The creativity displayed by our teens is incredible!

2nd Place and Honorable Mention winners were also awarded.  These individuals will each receive a gift card for Barnes and Noble.

Teen Readathon – Pick the Charity!

****Voting is now closed for the charity selection****

penny-jar-392378Our Teen Advisory Boards are plotting and scheming in hopes of hosting a Readathon on Saturday April 1st!

Here’s how it will work: Teens will read at their local Henrico library during a set period of time. For every page they read, a donation will be made to a worthy cause by a local sponsor.

We are in the process of planning this read-a-thon, and before we move on to the next step, we need YOU to choose the charity that our reading will benefit!

Choose from the charities listed in the poll below, and tell your friends to vote too!  These charities were selected by HCPL Teen Advisory Boards across the county, and each one is a worthy cause.
