Teen Read Week

October 13 - 19, 2013



Teen Read Week is almost here, and we’re celebrating by holding three fun contests throughout the month of October! Entry forms for all contests can be picked up at any SCPL location.


Candy Counting Contest: We’ve placed jars stuffed with candy at each of our 10 branches. Correctly guess how many pieces of candy are in the jar at your branch (or come the closest), and you could win all the candy AND a $20 Regal Cinema gift card!


Design a Bookmark Contest: Create a bookmark using the Teen Read Week theme—“Seek the Unknown @ the Library”—and you could win a $100 gift card to Michael’s! The winning design will be professionally printed and distributed at all SCPL locations.

  • To be eligible to win, participating teens, or someone living at the teen’s permanent residence, must be a full-privilege Spartanburg County Public Library cardholder.


  • Design can be full color and must be 1.5” x 7” and include the 2013 Teen Read Week theme. Digital entries must be 300 dpi and saved as a .jpg, .pdf, .tiff, or .eps.


  • Entries need to be accompanied by the artist’s name, address, phone #, age and grade in school, and can be turned in to any Spartanburg County Public Library location or emailed to teens@infodepot.org.


  • Entries will be judged based on originality, use of theme, and design. The contest ends October 31st, and the winner will be announced in November.

Seek The Unknown: A curiously unusual book titled The Unknown is hidden in plain sight in the teen collection at each branch. Seek The Unknown, then follow the directions within to win a sweet treat!
