During the sixth week of the Juneau Public Libraries’ Summer Reading program, 27 students took part in a book review contest. The participants, all under the age of 19, turned in reviews of 54 books.
As a reward for top reviewers, local businesses, in collaboration with the Friends of Juneau Public Libraries, awarded the young readers with gift certificates and various prizes for their dedication.
The top book review winners from the Mendenhall Valley Library are:
• Garrett Klein, age 11, for a review of “Gregor the Overlander” by Suzanne Colleins.
