Teaching a group of students who would be overjoyed to see one of their books on the library shelves?
Centre County children in grades 1 through 6 are invited to enter our Write and Illustrate Your Own Book Contest! Winners will be chosen from 4 categories, and their books will become a permanent part of the Children’s Department collection.
You may submit your entry between Monday, January 3, 2022 and Tuesday, March 8, 2022.
A complete list of rules and tips can be found below. All winners will be notified by letter in April 2022.
Need a little writing help or inspiration? Register for our Young Writers Workshops. They are typically held in the fall and early winter each year. Check the website or reach out to the Children's Department for specific dates.
