In celebration of the American Library Association’s Teen Tech Week 2017, the library staff conducted a book trailer contest sponsored by the Albuquerque Public Library Foundation.

Book Trailers are similar to movie trailers or previews, but they promote books instead of films. Book trailers are made to encourage people to read a particular book or novel. they give an audience a sense of what a book is about without giving away too many details. A Book Trailer is not a book review or a book report.
