The voting is taking place through July, and the winning theme will be announced on the library website on Aug. 9. The Masquerade will take place on Oct.22 from 6-9 p.m. at Central Library.
Teens may visit any branch of the Chesterfield County Public Library during July to choose from one of the following themes: Hollywood/Red Carpet; Black and White Ball; Dystopia; or Fire and Water. Voters will also have the chance to suggest their own favorite theme. Votes can also be cast online by going to library.chesterfield.gov.
Teen Read Week is an initiative of the American Library Association. Libraries across the world celebrate Teen Read Week with a variety of special events and programs aimed at encouraging teens to read for pleasure and visit their libraries for free reading materials.
The Chesterfield County Public Library is made up of nine branches, with the law collection housed at the Central Library. The library houses more than 4 million volumes and has more than 238,000 card holders. More than 2 million people visited county libraries last year.
