The annual contest was traditionally held in honor of National Library Week but has been moved due to testing schedule at teachers request. The contest is sponsored by the Library and the Friends of the Library. It is open to children in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. Its purpose is to promote awareness and interest in libraries, books and reading.
