Volunteen Book Review

Teens in grades 6-12 can write book reviews for volunteer hours! Selected reviews may appear on our Library’s Teen Instagram account, @cphlibteens. These may be edited for clarity.

Reviewers will receive three volunteer hours for each submitted review that meets all of the listed requirements, with a limit of five reviews per year. Please allow three weeks for certificates acknowledging volunteer hours to be emailed out.


  • Reviewed titles must be age-appropriate to the reviewer, owned by the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Public Library, and published within the last 12 months.
  • Reviews should be between 75 and 200 words.

After you’ve read a book, fill out the form below. Provide a well-written evaluation to help your fellow teens make a decision about choosing the book. Give your opinion, not a complete plot summary. No spoilers, please!
