Grades 3-8: Read and review new and unpublished books before anyone else. Stop by the Library to pick up your first review book and learn about the program!
- To receive a new early review book to review you must record your review online or turn in a paper copy at the Youth Services desk along with your previous book.
- Books are available on a first come, first served basis.
- Reviews submitted through this reading program may be used on the Library website or sent to the publisher of the book reviewed.
Early review books are free books sent to the Library by the publisher for review by the Library staff. Library staff may not have read and evaluated the books in the early review collection. Early review books may contain publishing errors and may not be sold or added to the Library collection.
