Community Service- Teen Book Reviews

Teen PJFL cardholders can earn community service by reviewing young adult novels on any of our e-books available in our Library (Overdrive, Hoopla, Libby, etc.). Published dates do not matter so long as the young adult book is on their reading level.
You will earn 2 hours of community service for each submitted book review that meets the required guidelines. Earn up to 4 hours of community service credits per month. You will receive an email whether the review is within the standards of the guidelines.
Once the review is approved, a community service letter will be delivered via email, based on the email provided in the form.
