Teen Contests Underway!
Ever heard of Ernest Hemingway’s six word story? Did you want to try it out for yourself, and see if you could build a story in less than a paragraph? The Granville County Library System is hosting a contest where you can do just that. Submit your own, original three-sentence story and win prizes and bragging rights!
After reading one of the Teen Top Ten nominees, do you think that maybe the cover art could’ve been a little better? Now, you can bring the book cover up to your standards. Design your own book cover either with a pencil or pen, or online. Bring your physical sketch to a Granville County Library or send your digital sketch to us through Facebook!

Each branch of the Granville County Library system now offers AWE Early Literacy Stations for kids. Come play online in a safe, interactive learning environment! Funding for the AWE Computers was provided by the Oxford Women’s Club.
TumbleBooks Subscription Renewed
A big “Thanks” goes out to the Friends of the Granville County Library System for funding a second year of TumbleBooks! The TumbleBookLibrary is a collection of animated, talking picture books with fiction, non-fiction and foreign language titles, Read-Alongs (chapter books with sentence highlighting and narration but no animation), TumbleTV which consists of pre-set playlists of a sequence of books, and Tumble Puzzles & Games.
TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books which have been licensed from children’s book publishers and converted to the TumbleBook format.
