Teen Guessing Jar
Grades 6-12
Are all your ducks in a row? Ours are and we're ready for our next Teen Guessing Jar. Once again it's different from previous guessing jars. This time, the only things in the jar are our Book Ducks. They're reading one book apiece. So the question is: How many items are in the ENTIRE West Nyack Free Library collection? Not just adult books. Not just teen or kids books. Not even just paper books. How many items, total? Place your guess in the jar next time you're in the library or email it along with your name, grade, email address and phone number to wnyteens@westnyacklibrary.org


Grades 6-12
May 2-June 5
 Teens and Tweens-- Create a ten word story on any appropriate topic of your choice. Hand your story in at the Children's or Adult Information desks or email it to us at wnyteens@westnyacklibrary.org between May 2 and June 5. Be sure to include your name, age, email, phone number and your Ten Word Story. Winners will be announced on June 13.
