Have a budding author in your family?

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.
