The Mysterious Case of the Mutant Library Books!

Mystery2

October is here and that means it’s time for a contest just for teens aged 13 to 18! The Mysterious Case of the Mutant Library Books runs from October 1st to October 31st. We’ve filled a display with daring, chilling, romantic, adventurous and downright scary books. Here’s the catch: we’ve wrapped all of the books so you won’t know exactly what you’re picking up! There are some clues, but the title will remain a mystery until you get your book home.

Each book has a “Rate Your Book” slip wrapped up with them. Just return that slip by October 31st for a chance to win! We will hold the draw Monday, November 2nd.
