What happens in the library after dark? The After Party is your chance to find out!

What do you dare to...read? Scariest Book Contest
Oscar winners beware – we have some stiff competition here in Virginia! The results are finally in from our second Teen Video Contest, where teens created video trailers for their favorite books in celebration of Teen Read Week. From Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief and Angie Sage’s Magyk, to Cracker by Cynthia Kadohata, historical fiction and fantasy ruled the day. Our local teens made show-stopping trailers that are guaranteed to put them on track to the Academy Awards. Each video was creative and exciting, demonstrating that teen books are alive and well at the CRRL. Great job to all the filmmakers and actors!
