Books have the power to shape us by changing the ways we think and feel. Think about a book that made a difference in your life. It could be you favorite book, one that you read at school or as part of this year's summer reading program. How did it make you feel? Did it change the way you see yourself, your family, or the world? Choose one book - it can be fiction or nonfiction - and write a short essay about how it had a personal impact on your life.
Submit your essay in-person by Friday, July 10, 2015 to your participating public library. For a list of libraries and additional information, visit http://loc.gov/bookfest/kids-teachers/booksthatshape/
