Thank you so much to all of our generous donors! Our project is fully funded and will certainly infuse even more FUN into our library programming! If you wanted to donate, you can still donate toward future projects--which at least one parent has done so far. Thank you!!!
One of the supplies we requested was to support a visit from Misako Rocks! a Manga artist who will be giving two workshops in the library on April 17, during periods 10 and 11. We are excited to have some art supplies available during (or after) the workshop for students who are inspired.
At the workshop, we'll also hear about an awesome Brooklyn Public Library WRITING CONTEST!
Teen Writing Contest & Ned Vizzini Teen Writing Prize
BPL's Teen Writing Contest is a chance for local teens to showcase their work in a supportive environment and to win the new Ned Vizzini Teen Writing Prize, an award to honor Ned and his literary legacy.
If you're a teen writer from New York City, grades 6-12, you're invited to submit your poetry and prose to be judged by a panel of BPL's expert young adult librarians for creativity, style and voice.
Participants and their families are invited to a celebration at the Dr. S. Stevan Dweck Cultural Center at Central Library, featuring student readings and a panel conversation between published young adult authors who share their experiences and advice with the aspiring writers. Top winners in poetry and prose will receive the new Ned Vizzini Teen Writing Prize with a cash award, and have their pieces published in the Teen Writing Journal distributed by the Library.

Ms. Ferguson is one of the librarians at the Brooklyn Tech Library. We look forward to seeing you in the library!
