Summer Reading Book Tracker (Teens)

Teens! Submit book reviews to us and each review will count as 1 hour volunteer time with HMCPL. Each review must include specific information- why you chose the book, what your liked/disliked about it, if you would recommend it to others, and a favorite quotation/passage/part that resonated with you. Treat this like you would anything you’d like to get credit for- incomplete reviews cannot earn volunteer hours.
