Welll laa dee daa! Wowzer, time has been freaking FLYING by!!!
I hope you guys are all enjoying your summer vacation thus far??? I’m guessing a bunch of you are actually doing a summer semester, aren’t you? Lol, I was so surprised the first summer I worked up in Maple and found out how many of you were willingly (and not be necessity!!!) attending summer school..Ah well, to each their own =P (I tease, I tease)
Sooooo, as you probably have been noticing, the Vortex has been more or less bombarded with some pretty wicked reviews that YOU have been writing!! *sniff* I’m just so proud of you guys *sniff* Haahaa!
Now, seriously, for those of you who’ve been wondering ‘What’s up with that??!?!?” basically, we’ve had a TON of people sign up for Teen Book Reviews, which is one of our volunteer programs that we offer year-round here at VPL. Feel free to create an account and comment on any of the reviews – maybe you have a question for the author, or maybe you want to say how much you loved (or hated) that book, too!
Annnnnd, because apparently it wasn’t common knowledge, Guess what guys?!?!??! YOU can post your own random musings whenever you want!!! That’s right, this whole site is for you, the teens (or maybe even a few pre-teens) of Vaughan.
Now, posting on the blog is not a volunteer program, so you’d be just doing it for fun or to share stuff if you fee like it, just in case that was unclear. To see a full listing of all the volunteer opportunities that are offered check this out here.
Ok, now back to the other stuff – the Teen Summer Reading Challenge!!!!
That’s right guys, the TSRC is back once more for another year of online contests and – you guessed it – the Challenge. This year’s contests include Book Trivia, Guess the Covers, and Who Said It – each correct answer gets your name in the draw that we’ll be holding at the end of the summer. And for the Challenge, we have prizes for the top THREE readers in Vaughan, so, if you’re a keen reader and think you’ve got time on your hands this summer, sign up!!!
If anyone has any questions, give me a shout.
Stay Classy guys,
