Beaverton library contest encourages teens to read

Chill with a book and possibly win prizes.


The Beaverton City Library is encouraging teenagers to read during the winter break by sponsoring a contest with prizes that make reading especially cool.

Starting this Saturday (Dec. 19) and going through Sunday, Jan. 3, 2016, students in grades 6 to 12 can read a book or ebook and take part in “’Tis the Season for Teen Reading” for a chance to win a gift card from retailers including Target, Burgerville, Cinemark Movie Theaters and Peachwave.

One lucky winner will receive the grand prize, an “Afternoon Out” gift card pack worth $45.

Entry forms are available at (and must be returned to) the teen rooms at either the main Beaverton City Library (12375 S.W. Fifth St.) or the branch in the Murray Scholls Town Center (11200 S.W. Murray Scholls Place).

Each person is limited to two entries. Winners will be announced after Jan. 3.

For more information or to download an entry form, visit beavertonlibrary.org/Teens or call 503-350-4001.
