The pleasure of remembering had been taken from me, because there was no longer anyone to remember with. It felt like losing your co-rememberer meant losing the memory itself, as if the things we’d done were less real and important than they had been hours before. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I think it is all a matter of love; the more you love a memory the stronger and stranger it becomes. — Vladimir Nabokov

The other three entries! Tumblr only lets me upload 10 per entry, so I divided them up a bit.

The Winter Teen Photo Contest is officially OVER.

All the entries so far (here and next post…) will be evaluated this week by an expert panel of myself (YA librarian), other library staff (including an artist), and some of your Shorewood teen peers. The winner will be announced next week so make sure I have your contact information!

"When I think of memories, I think of pieces of an intricate puzzle that makes up a person’s life when they’re all put together. Family, friends, events, experiences all make up different pieces of the puzzle. So, in a way, memories are what make you you.”
