‘Spark A Reaction’ teen summer reading winners announced

BRATTLEBORO — Solana Aguilar is the grand-prize winner of Brooks Memorial Library's “Spark a Reaction” teen reading contest.

Aguilar, who read for 17,233 minutes this summer, wins a $50 gift certificate from Everyone's Books in Brattleboro.

The other winners are Olivia Howe, who read 6,795 minutes; Emma Li, who read 5,461 minutes; Lucy Congleton, who read 3,592 minutes; and Grace Cunningham, who read nine books.

They also win gift certificates from Everyone's Books in Brattleboro.

Reading was logged at Engaged Patrons online, where visitors can share their reading with other teens.

Brooks adds in a press release that teen patrons can check out books, magazines, and audiobooks from its Teen Collection on the main floor. The library also stocks a large collection of graphic novels and audiobooks.

There are more than 2,500 titles to choose from. If you don't see what you need there, search the expanded Catamount Library Network and borrow a title.

Don't have an e-reader? Brooks has you covered there as well: teen patrons can check out an Amazon Kindle.
