The Teens of Salem Public Library Win the Summer Reading Video Contest

Congratulations to Salem Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board and Teen Librarian Sonja Somerville for winning the 2016 teen summer reading video challenge! Watch their winning video online now.

The Collaborative Summer Library Program’s (CSLP) Teen Video Challenge is a national competition for teens to get involved with reading and their public library’s summer reading program.  Winning videos were selected at the state level to be recognized as an official CSLP Teen Video Challenge winner for 2016. For their hard work and creativity, each winner for this year’s competition received a monetary award of $150 and the awards can be used as each winner sees fit. You can watch the winning videos from other states on the CSLP website.

You may use any of these videos to promote your own summer reading program!They are great for posting on your website and social media.

If you think teens at your library might want to participate in CSLP’s Teen Video Challenge, start planting the idea in their heads now so they’re motivated to create their own video for the 2017 teen summer reading video challenge. The 2017 summer reading theme and slogan will be Build A Better World. Information about participating in the 2017 Teen Video Challenge will be sent out next winter.
