Congratulations to Erika Hamauchi, an eighth grader, for her artistic cover of Rainbow Rowell’s book, Eleanor and Park! Erika won the grand prize, a $100 Visa Gift Card. She was one of seven middle and high school prize winners; everyone received a certificate of achievement and gift card.
The Book Cover Contest was held during Teen Read Week (October 9-15). The purpose of Teen Read Week is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users. For the contest, teens designed covers for their favorite books. Winners were announced at a reception held on Wednesday, November 16th. Entries were both hand drawn and digitally created. All were creative and original. The gift cards and reception were funded by an anonymous Friend of the Library.
Winning covers will be on display in Teen Central at Central Park Library through the month of December.
