Library celebrates library week with Create-A-Book challenge
Press Release March 29, 2001

The Newark Public Library will celebrate National Library Week (April 1-7, 2001) by holding its Create-A-Book challenge for children in grades PreK through 12. Create-a-book can be a play, a poem, a story, a diary or a wordless story of pictures or photographs. This year’s theme is Books Are Friends for Life.

Following are the Create-A-Book guidelines:
1. Children may participate according to their grade level: PreK-3, 4-8, 9-12. The book must be the child’s creation and in the child’s own handwriting or printing. Preschool children may ask an adult to act as secretary and write down the child’s words. Books that are typed or computer generated will not be accepted.

2. Children may create stories, poems, diaries, cartoon books, travel journals, scrap books, photo albums with captions, or wordless story books.

3. Children should choose their own topic and/or subject and may write about a true or imagined experience.

4. All books must be created on the official Create-A-Book booklet, which may be picked up in any Children’s Room, and completed by the April 25, 2001, due date.
