Teen Book Trailer Contest

Calling all teens! The St. Clairsville Public Library is hosting a Book Trailer Contest just for you! A book trailer is like a preview that you would see at the movie theater, but for a book!

On Monday, March 10th at 2:45pm stop by the second-floor Technology Center to learn how to use Animoto at our Book Trailer Workshop. After learning how to use Animoto, make a short trailer about a book of your choice.

If you missed this workshop, stop by the front desk to pick up the Animoto tutorial and register for the Book Trailer Fest.

Book Trailer Fest – Monday, March 24th at 2:45pm show us your work for a chance to win the grand prize-a DXG Ultra Slim HD Camcorder!

If that sounds like fun, call the library to save your spot for both programs: 740-695-2062.
