Our Creature Carnival is growing! Beasts, monsters, magical beings, robots, aliens - all are welcome at the Creature Carnival! Kids and teens bring in your original creations between Oct. 1 and Oct. 26, accompanied by a short description or backstory. Drop off at the Lower Level Children's Department desk.

Use any materials for your entry, but it needs to be freestanding and no larger than 24"W x 12"D.

Deadline for entries is Sat., Oct. 26 at 5 p.m. Looking for inspiration? Check out this stop motion animation video our librarian Marie B. made with her creatures. Discover what happened to her furry friends as they walked to the the library one day. This contest does not require a video, and we can't wait to see your original creations and read all about them!
