Teens! Want to be entered to win a $50 gift card? Of course you do!


Ok, what do I have to do?


Write me a story! Any story. Seriously, I can not make this any easier for you. Tell me that Cinderella chose to leave the prince and travel the world. Maybe the Prince Charmings are in love and don’t want to marry princesses anyway. Whatever, I want it all! Then, email it to me at abussard@hamdenlibrary.org by 5pm on August 28, 2020. Note: This is open to students entering grades 6-12.
