 Picture Book Writing Contest 2014

Write & illustrate a picture book for Picture Book Month

Blank books for the contest may be purchased at the Youth Desk for $1.


Blank pages must be filled with original drawings and/or text.

Because you are writing a “picture book,” each page should contain no more than 20 words.

Drawings & text should be appropriate for children between the ages of birth – 5 years,

and may cover any topic.

Neatness & content will positively influence judging.

Only one entry per person will be accepted.

Final entries will be due no later than Saturday, November 29th at the Youth Desk.


1st prize - $50, 2nd prize - $30, 3rd prize - $20

Prizes will be generously provided by the Friends of the Wichita Falls Public Library 

The top three finalists will be notified no later than Friday, December 12th.

All picture book entries are yours to keep & may be picked up after December 15th at the Youth Desk.

Tween & Teen Book Talk

Young Adult readers will join Kathy, Teen Librarian, to find out what's all new in YA!

Don't know what to read next?? Find out about ALL NEW & upcoming books available at the library.

Because we don't all like the same books, this is a way for you to find a new book that appeals to you.

Share what you are reading with others & enter a drawing for a bag of book & gift card.

Parents of tweens & teens are welcome.
