Kids events for the next 7 days
Kids Submit Stories:Theme -- Traveling! (NIC)Saturday, May 25, 2013 at All Day -- Nichols Library
The Contest - Monday, May 6 - Sunday, June 30
Are you a young author entering 3rd - 5th grade next year? Write a story on the theme of traveling. It could be about a real trip you took once or a zany imaginary journey. Characters could be your family or animals or silly outer-space monkeys - anyone you can imagine. Write the story on your own and bring it to the Children's Services Desk for submission. Pick up the complete rules and some tips for creative writing at the Children's Services Desk beginning May 6.
All submissions must be received by June 30.
In early July we will select 2 - 5 of the stories submitted to our writing contest to be adapted for a performance. If your story is selected, library staff will call you. On August 14, library staff will read your story aloud adding enhancements like puppets, props, sound effects or costumes. We invite everyone to come see what the selected authors have written for us at this performance.
Community Room, Wednesday, August 14, 11:00 - 11:45 a.m.
