Summer Reading Club

Congratulations to the more than 8,000 kids who participated in Summer Reading Club this year. We know you are ready for school, and we wish you a great year ahead.


All That and a Bag of Chips

The All That and a Bag of Chips book review club has come to an end for 2017. Thank you to all the participating tweens and teens for submitting their creative and interesting book reviews.

Over the course of the club, we had an incredible 686 reviews submitted! We gave out 800 bags of chips, 983 free books and awarded prizes to three lucky participants. We enjoyed reading your book reviews and look forward to more next year.

Read the book reviews on Tumblr.

Summer Challenge

The 2017 Summer Challenge has closed. Thank you for making GVPL part of your summer story!

Over the course of the contest, we had hundreds of entries and awarded prizes to eight lucky participants. We enjoyed your reading recommendations, comments and creativity and look forward to seeing you next year.

To see contest submissions, you can search hashtag #gvplchallenge on Twitter and Facebook. You’ll get some great book recommendations and see some enviable shelfies. Happy reading!
