Brandon, Queen's Square | July 5, 2021

This summer, join the Teen Tastemakers online in reviewing books, movies, music, and more from our collection. Make an impact on your local library and win some very cool prizes while you’re at it! Every review is a chance to win a $50 gift card to one of your favourite stores.

Past gift cards have been to: Michael’s Arts and Crafts, Canadian Tire, The Beat Goes On, Indigo, iTunes, etc.

In addition to winning points for submitting reviews on ReadSquared, you can also complete some creative writing and scavenger hunt challenges. And in September, there will be an extra grand prize draw for an even bigger gift card!

Learn more about the Virtual Teen Tastemakers and sign up.

We’ve also got an awesome photography challenge this summer. Teens who complete challenges will qualify for volunteer hours as part of the Teen Media Team. Select photos will appear on our website, social media, and other venues to promote teen programing.

Looking for a way to volunteer this summer? Join us for the Belong Together project, and create a tile to represent YOU and all the wonderful things you bring to our world, then submit it for our larger community art work!

Are you a teen new to Cambridge and Canada? Let’s Talk is a great place to plan your career path while participating in fun challenges and activities and making new friends.

See you in cyberspace. And maybe sometime soon… in person!
