To submit a book review of your own, you can either come to the library and fill out a paper form (located at the circulation desk) or you can complete the form located under the "Submit a Review" tab on the wordpress site (above link).
Those who submit reviews are periodically rewarded, so keep your eyes peeled for opportunities.
