I remember when I graduated from high school and the epic summer after graduation. I will most definitely be aging myself here, but one of the things I remember most is the music my friends and I listened to. My best friend would burn CDs full of our favorites bands and songs.

The Collaborative Summer Library Program has announced the winners of the 2017 Teen Video Challenge!
The Teen Video Challenge encouraged teens to create short public service announcements that promote reading and library use over the summer to other teens.
