The Teen Hub Blog is the newest addition for teenagers http://ncplteenhub.blogspot.com/! The Teen Hub Blog will serve as a place for teens to publish and read authentic book reviews. It is designed for teenagers to express their views on YA books. Also, the blog has many resources for teenagers needing help with homework, passing tests, and college. If you are a teen and interested in writing a book review for the blog, please email Crystal Drillen at crystal.drillen@nuecesco.com.
