Create Your Own Book Winners – 2008

Every year during National Library Week the Library holds the Create Your Own Book contest. Young readers in grades pre-K through 8 create their own books about anything they choose, and a panel of library staff chooses the top books as winners.

This year, the librarians had a difficult time trying to choose from over 200 creative books.

See the fantastic books created for 2008!
