Have you seen a flier at your local library here in Philly?
The “A Book That Shaped Me” summer writing contest is a reading and writing enrichment initiative that the Library of Congress has hosted for the past four years.
This contest encourages rising 5th & 6th graders to reflect on books that have made a personal impact on their lives. Deadline to turn in essays to a local library (local participating libraries) is July 18, 2016. So don’t delay!

This is the fifth year operating the contest. The contest began with only D.C. Public libraries and has since expanded to the participation of over 350 libraries throughout D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, West Virginia.
