Hey, looking for a way to earn community service hours? Do you like to write? Consider being a guest blogger on the Tulare County Teens website.

It's up to you. We will post reviews--these can be YA book reviews, but you can review anything you're interested in, like movies, TV shows, music, Youtube channels, app and tech reviews.

How long should the posts be?
About 100 words minimum. Feel free to add pictures, gifs, etc. Longer is fine, but novel length? Yeah, no.

Volunteer credit for blog entries will be offered to teens ages 14-19. You will email your entries to Carrie Wilson, the Youth Services librarian at carrie.wilson@tularecountylibrary.org.
