Description
Teens, ages 13-18, are invited to enter the Library's Three for Teens Card Competition. Many teens cannot borrow library books because their cards are blocked. The Library—in collaboration with the Friends of the Shaker Library—wants to create a Three for Teens card that will allow teens to borrow up to three books from the Library without the need for a parent's or guardian's signature. And they invite teens to design it. Be creative! (Designs of current Library cards are printed on the back of this flyer.)

All art should be clear when reproduced at a smaller size. Keep in mind that library cards are 2-inch by 3.5-inch wide. Designs may be drawn, painted, photographed or computer designed. The Shaker Library logo can be found online at shakerlibrary.org/logo.

You may use the attached entry form or your own sheet of paper. You may submit your entry electronically as a high resolution PDF or JPG by email to msimon@shakerlibrary.org. In the body of the email, please include your name, phone number, and email address.

Entries will be accepted through January 30, 2017. Entries can be submitted at the Youth Services Desk, Teen Desk, or Circulation Desk. The winner will be announced February 17.

I did not really like this book it was a filler book in the series, it was used more as a bridge between it and the third book. i like the characters in the book that are introduced such as Troth but they where not developed enough to my taste.But i like the author and would recommend this series if only for the first book which was very good.  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog
