Become a Teen Reviewer

Review books, music, and movies and earn community service hours! Teens can earn one community service hour for every review! Reviews may be posted on the Teen Blog and used in Library promotions. Reviews of 10 items per year will count toward your community service hours, but you may review as many items as you wish. Items reviewed must be from Oshawa Public Libraries’ collection, or from our selection of ARCs (Advance Reader Copies).

Reviews must:

  • Be between 250-300 words in length.
  • Contain both a summary of the book/movie/album, as well as a personal critique.
  • Not contain “spoilers”.
  • Be suitable for publication.

Becoming a reviewer is easy – simply fill out the form below to select your items to review. We will contact you by email to let you know your items have been approved, so you can begin writing!
