The Petworth Library would like congratulate the wonderful Teens of Petworth, who completed the Teen Summer Reading Program. You have exceeded the Teen Summer Reading Program completion goal for 2013. And as promised, I, Mr. Jordan, have dyed my hair purple. Feel free to come see my hair and attend one of our awesome teen programs.   

Teen Summer Reading Prize WinnerThe Petworth Library would like to also congratulate one of our Petworth Teens, Ms. Ashley Amponsem, who won a pair of Beats by Dre Head phones.

Ashley is a seventh-grader attending Thomas Johnson Middle School. She loves math as much as she loves reading. Out of the six books Ashley read this summer, Mira's Diary: Lost in Paris by Marisa Moss was her favorite.

When asked if the book's cover matched the book's story plot, Ashley responded, "Yes this book cover matches the story. The reason I say that is because on the cover has picture of important people and artifacts. In the story Maira meets so many people and learns a lot of interesting facts about Paris."
