Contest Winners Revealed!!!

Thanks to all those who participated in our December Giveaway Contest!! Many awesome suggestions were submitted regarding our YA collection - suggestions so awesome it was downright hard to decide.

Our fist place winner - recipient of a gift card to Essex Books is.......
Danna R. for her suggestion of "Black Duck" by Janet Taylor Lisle.
A few teens have asked to put this book on hold from other libraries - and others have asked why we don't have it. Danna's write up and submission was just what we needed to get the ball rolling. We will be buying Black Duck for our teen library collection and it will include a bookplate with Danna's name on it. We will also be considering Black Duck as an upcoming teen book discussion title.

Thanks Danna!!

Our Second Place Winner:

Christina M. for her suggestion of Thin Ice by Marsha Qualey. Christina's submission review will be published on our blog, and we hope to purchase this book for our collection in the next month!!

Thanks to all who participated!!

Jessica and Essex Library Staff
