Time to show up for your favorite characters!

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).

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.
