There’s no better time to read than during Summer Break!

Select one of the books listed below under your grade level and participate in the CLF Summer Adventure Essay Contest. Write an essay focusing on how the main character’s experiences helped you learn something new about yourself. You could win $1000 for your school library and a personal Kindle Fire. All entries are due by September 15th, 2015 and must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
