    President of the Library Books Creative Writing Contest  (Grades K-12)

    Entries due October 23

    Calling all imaginations! It’s time to get creative. The library book characters on our shelves are electing a president this year, and they need your help!  Students in grades K-12 can fill out our creative writing nomination form, telling us what book character they think would make a good president and why. Are they strong and smart? Kind and brave? Would they pass laws to protect animals or give out free cake to everyone?

    Nominated characters will go head to head in elections, where our community will decide who should be the next Library Book Presidents, based on their nominations! One winner will be decided for the Children’s division (ages 5-10) and one for the Tween/Teen division (ages 11-18). Each division’s winning nomination will win our grand prizes; a new Kindle Fire! Additional winners will receive recognition and books.

    To enter online or find more information, visit: https://www.pawlingfreelibrary.org/election/ or stop by the library to pick up an entry form in person (forms available starting Sept. 18th).

    Time to show up for your favorite characters! Did you know that for the last two months, youth in our community have put together nominations for the next President of the Library Books?  Well, now it's time to vote for the winners!

    Help us pick which characters you think would make the best leader! Visit https://www.pawlingfreelibrary.org/election/ to vote, from October 26 - November 3. One winner will be chosen for the Children's division (Ages 5-10) and one for the Teen division (Ages 11-18).

    The president of the library is a leader, chosen by popular vote, who is in charge of all of the other book characters in the library. To win the President of the Library election, a character must be nominated by a teen or child. Each participant has written a platform for their selected character that describes the characters beliefs and what they would do as president. Anyone is eligible to vote.
