2019 Creative Writing Contest WINNERS!

The 52th Annual Children’s Creative Writing Contest awards presentation was held April 28 at Bemis Library. This year’s speaker was Len Vlahos, a young adult author and co-owner of the Tattered Cover bookstores. His wise words were encouraging to all ages to appreciate the value of writing and reading. 

Each year, since 1967, the winning entries with the Creative Writing Contest have been bound and preserved as special part of the Bemis Library collection.  These books are available for viewing in the Children’s Department of the Library. The 2019 edition will be available summer 2019.

Our congratulations to the Winning Authors!
