For all of you aspiring musicians, check out our Battle of the Recorded Bands contest: YOU could play a live show to kick off the library's summer reading program!
To kick off Teen Tech Week (March 9th-15th), we’re having a contest featuring some tunes from the library’s collection. You can check out any of these songs on their respective CDs or on Hoopla, a streaming service you can use with your library card!
Here’s how it works:
- We’ll post a song on Tumblr each day, Monday-Friday starting on the 10th.
- Each week will represent a different teen book.
- The first person to guess the book represented will win an iTunes gift card.
- You can comment on any of the songs posted on Tumblr to submit your guess.
Questions? Contact us on Tumblr or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One last thing: you have until the end of the month to submit an entry for our Battle of the Recorded Bands contest. We have prizes donated by Guitar Center to give away and other goodies, including a live gig at the library to kick off the summer!
